about

R

ebecca King is a fine art photographer from New Zealand. She uses photo manipulation to create surreal images that are heavily inspired by animals, nature, symbolism, and the line between reality and fantasy.

Her creative path began with paints and a brush, but she moved on to her greater love, photography, in 2018. Still wishing to use this medium in an artistic way, she picked up a camera and started experimenting. “This has become a new way of painting; all though instead of painting with pigments I paint with light.”

Rebecca believes as artists we can turn our dreams into reality. She feels her recent works come from a place of layering, intuition, and experimentation and exist somewhere in between painting and photography.

“A WORLD WHERE EVERYTHING IS

POSSIBLE

“Creating brings me a sense of peace and offers me a place to meditate on the beauty in nature and my highest goal is to convey that same feeling of serenity and magic to my audience, offering a window to a world where everything and anything is possible.”

She has sold her works in several group exhibitions, was published 3 years running in the NZ Camera Book, and has also received her PSNZ Licentiate Honours.

Her vision as a fine art photographer is to show how animals, nature, and people are all connected to our magical world, and strives to tell that story through her work. “Nature is an inexhaustible source of inspiration, not subject to fads and trends; it has a timeless beauty.”

This vision inspires her print collections.
