Photos by Petra Shrieves.
I'm Petra Shrieves, a 21 year old, self taught, New York City based photographer. I was born and raised in the city, and though it's an art filled place, I didn't become fully invested in photography or art at all until I was 15. During my tough times in high school, I turned to my camera, and thus, Petragraphy was born.
Petragraphy is the balance of reality and surrealism, the dream state that clings to you when you're on the brink of waking, Petragraphy is the vision so many artists are afraid of. In a world filled with forced minimalism and works made to scare the world with the 'cold hard facts', I only want to inspire those to find the color. To seek out the vibrancy in life and share it with the rest of the world.
