Renee Robyn: The Photo Art Career That Started with a Motorcycle Crash

Comment

Canadian photographer and photo-manipulator Renee Robyn has had an unusual career journey — one that started with a devastating motorcycle crash. After getting knocked off her bike and run over by a vehicle, she spent 5 days in the hospital and the next 6 months learning how to walk again.

Photography turned out to be the one thing she could do all the time during her physical rehab, and during that time Robyn ventured deep into the world of composite photo art.

“I couldn’t get anywhere,” she says. “I had to bring the world to me.”

The 3.5-minute feature above by SmugMug Films offers an inspiring look into Robyn’s life and work.

Robyn shoots photographs in multiple locations and then uses Photoshop to combine them into one image to create “surreal and mysterious worlds that stretch the boundaries of imagination.”

Here are a couple of Robyn’s works alongside behind-the-scenes videos showing how they were composited:
