From an interview with Jill Greenberg on FWA:
[Greenberg] Since about 2010, I have been creating personal work using state-of-the-art digital technology [such as] the image processing software CaptureOne to do my “‘Paintings'” which are photographs of paintings I create and light with stencils of words and shapes reflected in the wet paint.
I have always been told my photographs look like paintings and this is probably because of my own hand in my digital retouching, but also since I come to photography from drawing and painting, which I still do. I like to find ways to make images that look like paintings even though they are not.
I have been taking photographs and was even in the darkroom since I was 9 years old and still love it just as much as when I began. I have also been making some short films and love the added layers of meaning and of course the storytelling—it is a very different headspace.
