She’s added a new twist to photography and art.
Meet Lainie Vreeland. A native of Incline Village since 1979, Lainie’s hand-modified photo artistry came out of her desire and passion to preserve Tahoe’s history and culture such as this classic summertime scene at Fanny Bridge in Tahoe City.
While there are others who hand-modify photos, Lainie’s work stands apart. Lainie’s art photos convey a dreamy quality that transports the viewer back in time, and into the moment.
To achieve this altered state, Lainie uses a vintage instant film camera. Next, during the developing process she uses small wooden tools and paint to hand modify the photo to give it that surreal effect.
An accomplished artist in various mediums, Lainie has received many awards for her Hand-Modified Photo Artistry, photography and drawing.
Lainie’s photo art is on display at Vista Gallery.
