Tina Maas studied Graphic Design at Camberwell College of Arts in London from which she graduated with a BA in 2000. During her studies she took part in a semester long exchange programme to Parsons School of Design in New York City where she was first introduced to experimental photography. As a result of her studies abroad she met and assisted fine art Photographer Jill Enfield for 3 months. After her graduation Tina travelled for one year throughout Eastern Europe and South East Asia, where most of her travel photography originates. She has been adding to her collection from subsequent trips ever since. Following her trip she lived in Israel for more than a year where she had 2 articles published in the travel magazine "Teva HaDvarim", exhibited at the "Suss Ets" Café and took part in the monthly alternative art evening at "The Balcony" performance space. Tina has been writing book reviews and conducted interviews for the photography website takegreatpictures.com and also assisted on several mentor series photo treks which are run by American Photo Magazine and Popular Photography Magazine. Having returned to England she spent the past summer working for the Santa Fe Photographic workshops in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she assisted many well known photographers and expanded her experience of both B&W and color photography, in the studio and on location. Currently she is selling her work on Camden Lock Market in London and is looking forward to the forthcoming exhibition of her new tintype works at the "Islington Arts Factory" in march 2004.
