ABOUT CHRYSTYNE

Chrystyne is a model, photographer, and art director based in Chicago, IL USA. In 2001 after being discovered at a concert by renowned fetish photographer Lee Higgs, she began exploring modeling as an artistic outlet. Inspired by her modeling experiences, she shifted her focus from digital fine art to photography in 2007. Identifying as a “visual wanderer,” she works intuitively to capture and emulate the emotions at the core of the human condition. She brings a healthy dose of humor and passion to the table and takes pride in creating environments that bring out the best in her subjects and collaborators.
