Christina Riley (b. 1984) uses photography to communicate the truth in her life and what surrounds it. Her work primarily focuses on her struggle with mental illness and the power it has, both beautiful and dark. Self-portraiture is her main genre, but she uses landscapes and environmental photography to help record and convey her experiences. By photographing others, she explores her place in the world and how she fits in.
Christina was born in Ottawa, Canada and has lived in Seaside, California for the past nine years. She studied photography at college then went on to assist and shoot professionally. Personal work is now her focus.
She also makes music and videos.
