A former graphic designer, Joan Kocak’s fine art prints are exhibited in galleries in New England, as well as the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO, and have been published in several photography magazines (SHOTS, Digital SLR Photography, Stark Magazine, The Sun Magazine). Enchanted with all forms of photography; analog, digital, alternative process, toy cameras, Polaroid and her dad’s old Ikoflex, she enjoys experimenting with them all. A native of the Northeast, her images are infused with a deep connection to the land and water of the area.
"Most of the locations where I shoot have great significance for me, and often remind me of specific people in my life, both here and gone. My images often convey a sense of quiet contemplation. I’m fascinated with the graphic design elements of nature and find inspiration in the beloved forests and conversation lands where I live.”
These archival images are printed on Hahnemuhle German Etching papers, a heavy fine art paper that somewhat has the look and feel of watercolor paper, and have hand-torn deckled edges. Each work is a signed and numbered limited edition
