Cherie E. Truesdell is a fine art photographer who creates staged images to explore the inner human landscape through the use of symbolism and allegory. Each photo series is planned months in advance, starting with a rough sketch and a color story. Vintage, used, and found objects are often incorporated to emphasize the passage of time and obsolescence . In her work, Cherie explores themes of metamorphosis, impermanence, and our relationships with each other and our environment. Cherie's work has been described as "displaced fairy tale" and has been juried into many group exhibits throughout the U.S. Cherie lives and works in Marietta, Georgia.
