Kristine Hinrichs is a Wisconsin based photographer. She lives in downtown and focuses on the urban environment, an outgrowth of her training and interest in urban planning. Her goal is to show the city as an interesting and safe place - to find those elements where the viewer says "I've walked by there a hundred times and never noticed that.". She shots with the Olympus mirrorless camera system.
Her work has been featured in several juried exhibitions – the Racine Art Museum’s biannual Wisconsin Photography 2018 and 2020, Racine Art Museum triennial “Racine and Vicinity Show 2021 All Media Juried Competition”, Plymouth Art Center “Alive in the Arts” in 2020 and 2021, three Praxis Gallery exhibitions, CoPA Milwaukee, Art Bar Milwaukee, Appleton’s Trout Museum SECURA “Fine Arts Exhibition” in 2020 and 2021, Museum of Wisconsin Art, and others.
She is a member of the Milwaukee Coalition of Photographic Arts (CoPA), Photo Midwest, the Milwaukee Artist Resource Network (MARN), and several other arts-related organizations.
All of her images are part of an ten year long (and continuing) Project 365. Her shots are generally those of opportunity, many as a result of early morning wanderings in Milwaukee, WI.
