Kirsten also known as "Bode" began her photography career twelve years ago in NYC. Managing Shangrila Studio a photography studio in Greenpoint Brooklyn gave her the space and time to explore and grow her technique. With an extensive history as an editorial hair and makeup artist she decided to take what she had learned from all of her time on set and pick up the camera. Bode's aesthetic has been described as Old Hollywood meets 1940's surrealism. Shooting her artwork predominantly on film as well as her years of experience specializing in historical hair and makeup techniques truly gives her the creative advantage to create exactly what she envisions . Bode now resides between NYC &Stockholm, Sweden where she continues to work in both still and moving pictures.
