Penrhyn Cook started making pictures at the suggestion of her photographer husband, Rod Cook, who convinced her to enroll in a photographic workshop rather than spending a vacation sitting on the beach. She has never looked back. Her early work was shot with film and processed as toned, silver gelatin prints. She now works digitally and in her personal work utilizes little manipulation other than that which could be achieved in the darkroom. Her photography documents things that other people overlook; the serendipitous moments that make life interesting: the presentation of contradictions, innocence and humor. Recently, she has been collaborating with her husband, under the name of PenRod, to produce imagery of animal life in Africa and the beauty of Southern France.
