Cali Gorevic is an award winning black and white fine art photographer living in the Hudson Valley. Originally a medium format film photographer, she also now photographs digitally, still printing every photograph herself.
Her work springs from her strong connection with nature. She often travels to unusual environments for the inspiration she finds among trees and rocks. She has also produced portfolios of still life and architecture, as well as “Imagine That”, a children’s book featuring digital color composites of toys.
I am drawn to mysterious places - forest landscapes where fairy tales can happen - wildernesses that do not appear on maps. Although the human eye sees nothing, one knows that there is magic afoot, that after the sun sets sprites and satyrs appear and trees dance. I make photographs of these places and print them in black and white. When I print I draw from my memory and imagination, using various techniques to convey the enhanced reality that I experienced in the forest.
Cali has taught privately and at the Garrison Art Center, where she also served for many years on the Board of Directors. She has shown nationally and internationally. Her work appears in numerous private and corporate collections including Alliance Capital and Erste Bank in NYC, ITT and Quest Diagnostics. She has also served as curator, judge and juror for many organizations including NYFA.

“Our visual world is replete with energy, poetry and mystery which I feel compelled to explore. With my visions and imagination I can create a reality that does not exist, can make order out of chaos, and can show the viewer my perception of the visual world we share.”
