Christine Ruddy: Photographs

May 1, 2018 12:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Tuesday and Saturday, repeating until June 30, 2018 12:00 am

Central Ohio photographer Christine Ruddy exhibits her unconventional art photography at Highline Coffee Art Space in Worthington from May 1 through June 30, 2018. In May, Ruddy displays a collection of her varied work, and in June, she shows her series Girls on a Train, photographed at the Ohio Railway Museum in Worthington. An artist reception is scheduled for Saturday, May 5, 2-4pm.

A self-taught artist who realized her passion for photography later in life, Ruddy overcame her internal voice and those of others who said she was too old to learn a new craft. Ignoring those voices, she moved ahead and discovered an art form that changed her life in remarkable ways.

“I’ve learned that I can capture images that are uniquely mine,” Ruddy explains. “I’m always seeking something different and rare to photograph. Many times I look for vintage items in flea markets and antique stores and incorporate them into my work. By re-purposing these items into images, they can be enjoyed and appreciated by many generations to come.”

When traveling, Ruddy bypasses the usual tourist attractions to find locations that others might avoid, seeking out back alleyways, shop windows, and people on the street as subjects. Determined to create photographs that speak to the essence of the region, Ruddy captures images that have a “different perspective to illustrate the often overlooked aspects of our culture and history.”

A member of the National Press Photographers Association, Ruddy has covered events related to the 2016 U.S. presidential election in both Washington, D.C. and Ohio. Her photographs have been published in international publications in 19 countries.
