Rebecca Bruyn

Rebecca Bruyn considers herself an Alternative Photographer, using technology from the 1840’s, cyanotypes, to the 21st century, iPhoneography.   In response to a growing interest, she began teaching “Intro to iPhoneography” in Provincetown to small groups of 4-6 participants in 2015. Bruyn’s work has been exhibited locally at The Addison Art Gallery/After Hopper in Orleans, The Cortile Gallery in Provincetown, Cape Cod Art Association in Barnstable, Cotuit Center for the Arts and at the Cape Cod Museum of Art/After Hopper Exhibit in Dennis.  Her work has been seen on social media through juried competitions regionally and internationally. In 2016, she won 1st place in the Mobile Device Exhibition/Indiana for “Winter Dune Flight”.

Since being captivated by the digital artistry of iPhoneography I have been completely transfixed. It has given me an opportunity to access a creative expression unlike anything I have ever experienced in many years of photographing. To be able to immediately capture what I see and to rework the image to reflect what I felt is enormously rewarding to me. I am drawn to capturing a mood that can reflect back a place of beauty and quiet mystery.”
