Lisa Kristine is a San Francisco based photographer specializing in indigenous peoples worldwide. Through her work, Lisa wishes to encourage a dialogue about the beauty, diversity and hardship of our inter-locking world. The more meaning born in the images, the deeper that dialogue may be. Lisa Kristine aims to enhance her viewer’s awareness and engage them in a visual journey that is also a questioning of our existence. She wants to welcome them into the exploration of our mysterious existence with a spirit of importance, astonishment and hope.
For more than thirty years, Lisa Kristine has explored the globe, looking for the peoples, cultures and places that time forgot, creating indelible and unforgettable images. She brings the distant and the ancient and the rare into clearer focus. Best known for her evocative and saturated use of color, her fine art prints are among the most sought after and collected in her field. Lisa’s work has been auctioned by Christie’s New York for the United Nations with Kofi Annan; she works with foundations, educational venues and museums.
This collection of images by renowned photographer Lisa Kristine was originally owned by global health care company Glaxo Smith Kline and exhibited in their corporate offices in Cambridge, MA. Following an office reconfiguration and relocation, Glaxo Smith Kline contacted Cambridge Arts with an offer to donate the artwork to the City of Cambridge so that the photographs that feature countries, people, and cultures where their research and medications are at work could be enjoyed by the public more broadly. This exhibition and partnership between Cambridge Arts and the Multicultural Arts Center debuts this artwork to the public for the first time. We hope you enjoy the collection.
