Christine Huhn is a visual artist and cultural heritage professional who grew up in northeastern Pennsylvania, less than five miles from the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. This connection to the landscape has deeply influenced her work, which focuses on preserving cultural landscapes through film photography and historic photographic processes. She received her bachelor of fine arts in photography from the State University of New York at New Paltz and her master of arts in historic preservation from Savannah College of Art and Design.
In 2021, Christine exhibited her long-term project Can We See Time, a documentation of the fragile shoreline landscape within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, at the Napa County Library in Napa, CA and Hotel Biron in San Francisco, CA. Her work has been selected for group exhibitions nationally, most notably at the Wildling Museum of Art and Nature, New Museum Los Gatos, and The Center for Fine Art Photography. Christine’s work was recently published in the book Cyanotype Toning: Using Botanicals to Tone Blueprints Naturally, a part of the Contemporary Practices in Alternative Process Photography book series. Over the past ten years, Christine has volunteered at many non-profit organizations including; the National Park Service, the Landmarks Association of St. Louis, Baltimore Heritage, the Historic Preservation Office (Washington, DC), and Western Neighborhoods Project (San Francisco). She has been awarded artist residencies at Dorland Mountain Arts Colony, Mojave National Preserve Artists Foundation, and Kala Art Institute. Christine is the Head of the digitization lab at UC Berkeley Libraries and currently lives in San Francisco, CA.
