The selection of Victoria's photos is always changing.

Lincoln, Vermont

Artist Statement:

Victoria’s original black & white photographs are the basis for her luminous images. Each image starts as a sepia tone print and is then meticulously hand-colored using a tinting technique that gives each image a mystical quality.

Victoria Blewer left the chaos and clutter of New York City in 1986 to devote herself full time to fine art photography in the quiet hills of Vermont. She works entirely in black and white films, and then she hand colors the images. Her work has been featured in full-length photo essays in the Boston Sunday Globe Magazine, Vermont Life, and Vermont Magazine.

Hand-coloring photographs is a delicate and time-honored technique used by photographers for well over a century. By applying paint with cotton wrapped tightly around a toothpick, the artist rubs the paint onto the photograph until the color is smooth and even. Each photograph is an original print, colored individually, and in a limited edition of between 15 and 50 prints.

“I prefer to work with oil paints, because of the texture they lend to my work and because of the vibrant quality of the oil colors. Many of the images I choose to hand-color are among my most surreal, and oils reinforce their dreamlike quality.
