Claudia de Franko, a free-lance artist who lives in Troutville, VA, creates black & white and unusually toned photographs that capture “life as it is” in many unusual locations across the world.
She has studied art at Hollins University, Prague and in New York City. As she has traveled, de Franko has used her camera to reflect human experiences far different from the world of rural Virginia. She has won several awards for her photography, which has been featured in various publications and been exhibited nationally and internationally. One characteristic of de Franko’s work is that she rarely prints an image twice, assuring that her patrons acquire a unique, archival object. She is the owner of Gala Studios and Mexoteca.
