With over twenty years of experience capturing life in her own artistic way, Valerie Kunzi has created a portfolio that portrays life "as is": transparent, loud, and angled. Using a technique that she calls "angled photography" by which different camera angles affect the emotional response of her audience... Valerie grips the camera in hand, and holds it at various heights, so far as flipping the camera and pressing it up against other surrounding objects... these are just the start of Valerie's techniques. Her underlying goal is evident in each shot: to evoke extreme emotional, unusual, or symbolic meaning. In a generation where models are air brushed, and landscapes are edited for their pseudo vibrance, it is rare to find a picture that "says what it means." Valerie believes in penetrating one's character - whether a person, animal, or nature - and extracting the truth. Inspired by Pamela Hansen, Valerie's edge is also unique and inspires.
Valerie was born in Switzerland and grew up on the East Coast. She was educated at the University of Vermont and later attended Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences where she pursued her studies in nursing. Valerie has an older brother, and currently resides in Los Angeles.
