About corrie ancone
professional freelance & fine art photographer of over 30 years
Born in Holland, Corrie Studied a Diploma of Fine Arts at the South.Australian School of Art in Adelaide , as well as several external subjects in the areas of fashion design & craft.
In her formative years she worked as a phsychiatric nurse, a draughtsman's assistant & at completion of her fashion design course, a Lingerie designer.
Corrie began as an artist & exhibitor, in the medium of painting & took up photography as a hobby.
She soon fell in love with photography, which allowed a spontaneity she was craving and began experimenting with overlaying her b/w negative images & later colour transparencies.
Totally engrossed in the technique & obsessed by the b/w & colour collisions and its tendency to create new dimensions with a painterly effect, she fulfilled her creativity, inspiration & imagination that had been so cultivated, yet frustrating as a painter.
In later years she was able to finesse this technique more, with the new medium of Digital technology & programs associated with same.
Apart form her artistic endeavours Corrie also began freelancing as a stills photographer in theatre, film, events & art related industries .
Over the years , Corrie has taught Art related subjects, inluding photography. She ran a darkroom & studio from home where she processed all her images for her clients & her exhibitions.
She moved to Sydney in 1986.
Here, she has continued to freelance as a professional photographer in the areas of the arts, community, documentary, film, music, and some corporate areas & has had several exhibtions, group & solo.
She also worked p/t as support worker in the mental health welfare system.
Corrie has been exhibiting her art regularly now, since 1975 Nationally & Internationally & held in many collections. aShe has been published in several International Photographic Books & Magazines.

"My photography is similar to and reflects the techniques and working styles of the early European Dadaists Impressionists & Baroque artists, by whom i am surely influenced. Drawing my inspiration from mythology and nature, my creativity stems from my lust for finding and exploring sympathies between the human body, the landscape and its textures. Using the techniques of collage & overlay, colors and images collide, creating new visual and emotional images, often painterly and somewhat surreal. I don’t care for the certainty of what’s in front of my lens, but the creativity, the fantasy and the invention, that can gush from a thought thereafter or one that was there before..sometimes described as synthetic realism."
