Cynthia is an award-winning photographer, whose portfolio includes fine art as well as documentary-style portrait and wedding photography. She is currently based in Alexandria, Virginia but is always willing to travel when it comes to photography.
In 2005 she deployed to Iraq with the United States Army for a one-year tour of duty. Cynthia created a powerfully haunting group of images that examine the nature and meaning of power, politics and empire. Although her subjects were neither soldiers nor insurgents, Americans nor Iraqis, the devastation tells its own story in the context of two disconnected cultures and their place in time and history.
In March 2007 she was a spotlighted photographer in Black & White Magazine, a magazine for collectors of fine art photography. In May 2008 she attended Review Santa Fe, a juried portfolio review event for photographers who have created a significant series of images.
Cynthia’s photographs of Iraq are held in the permanent collection of the Southeast Museum of Photography in Daytona, Florida and have been exhibited in galleries in the Southeast United States and Hawaii, and in Big World Magazine, an on-line, multi-media magazine.
In 2011 Cynthia self-published Victory Over America, a book in which she considers the meaning of victory through her documentary photographs of Iraq and Saddam Hussein’s Victory Over America palace. Her book was a People’s Choice award nominee in the 2011 Photography Book Now contest.
Cynthia is also a contributing photographer to LuckyPix, a stock agency with an unswerving mission to find and offer the most unique and serendipitous images online.
