atc BLACK SEMINOLE by Christine Cook




In CameraUSA 2014 at the Von Liebig Center in Naples, Florida

“There are two impressive portrait studies: “Black Seminole,” an intense close-up of a grizzled man, but Christine Cook, Naples, who reminds viewers of how blacks, escaping slavery in the Everglades, enriched the Seminoles with their crop-planting knowledge.” 

– Donald Miller, Columnist, Naples Daily News, Naples, Florida, August,


“We have been so lucky to have the honor of hanging Christine’s photography pieces on the walls of our non-profit organization, where we teach literacy skills to individuals who come from … around the world. Her beautiful photos of children and families from other nations brighten our offices, and serve as a daily inspiration and reminder that, no matter where you are from, you are an individual worthy of opportunity and respect. Thank you, Christine, for sharing these beautiful images with us.”

       – Elaine Mayrides, Executive Director, Literacy Volunteers of Collier County, August, 2014


“I have had the opportunity to be exposed to Christine’s work on several occasions. The true test of a fine art photographer is the ability to take you past the documentation of a scene or event and into the true spirit of being there and experiencing the moment. Christine has this ability and a talent that takes you from the ordinary to the extraordinary. A talent that everyone should experience.
