Minnesota native now based in New York, Sinjun Strom is a photographer and visual artist who doesn’t just take portraits — she makes them. Her ideas take root in detailed journals she keeps, mapping out possible subjects and sets for her elaborately produced images having her hands on on almost every aspect of her photographs. From the clothes to the sets, she even hand-crafts wallpaper backgrounds and props creating an almost cinematic style. She recently finished at the School of Visual Arts in New York, exclusively learning film formats from 35mm to large format view cameras.
