The remarkable images produced by Karen Divine simply do not remind you of photography. Featuring odd assemblages of fantastic creatures, shapes, and colors, they look more like surrealist paintings. It is easy to picture the artist creatively constructing these oodles of oddness on nice, big canvases. But Divine does it all on the 2-by-3.5-inch display of an iPhone.

The Boulder, Colorado, resident, who has worked in photography for four decades, said her conversion to “iPhonography” was a gradual progression. 
“I started using Photoshop in 2001. Then I figured out the iPhone and started adding those [photos] to the Photoshop images, and when I realized I could just composite on the phone, I completely switched.” Divine offers a free Santa Fe Photographic Workshops slide presentation on Wednesday, March 6, and teaches a fee course in Creative iPhone Photography March 6 to 9 and June 19 to 22.
