Caryn Drexl born 1980, is a self-taught conceptual and portrait photographer based in north/central Florida, USA. She has a unique approach to taking female portraits. Her style is like the photographic version of Edgar Allan Poe, with its imaginative details and vague sense of discomfort. She openly admits that “Everything I know I learned through trial and error or the internet.” Although she loves the look of film, and does own some vintage cameras, for practicality she prefers working with digital images. And no big cameras either, “I have girly little hands and a dislike for big heavy cameras that’ll break my wrist or my neck, so the littler ones suit me well.”

In 1993 MicroProse unleashed techno-vampires into cyberspace and gave us one of the most psychedelic experiences in the history of gaming with their unusual blend of futuristic cyberpunk RPG and gothic horror adventure game, BloodNet,
The usual dark, ominous vision of future New York ran by mega-corporations wasn’t edgy enough for the devs working on the game over 20 years ago. Adding vampires on top of cyberpunks, hackers, mercenaries, and net-junkies turned out to be the perfect touch to make the game unique and memorable. Even though it was a tad to strange to go really big, the game remains a cult classic of the cyberpunk genre. With its twisting and unsettling story of one man’s struggle to hold on to his decaying humanity and fend off the vampire menace looming over the cybernet and the entire world, BloodNet delivers a strange, yet very enjoyable vision any cyberpunk fan should see.

Photography arrived quite late in my life, but fortunately passions are timeless, so at 28 I took a camera in my hands without knowing that after a while my desire would be to keep it there forever. To take pictures has become something that goes beyond the simple realization of images and has deeply changed my way of experiencing life and relating to others.
In the current years I worked for several international agencies and clients such as JWT, Saatchi & Saatchi, Leo Burnett, BBDO, Corbis, Pepsi Cola, Kraft, Gatorade, Novartis.
My images appeared on many magazines and journals such as The New York Times, Communication Arts, Panorama First, Vision, Vogue Russia, GQ Russia, L’espresso, Computer Arts to name some of them.
In the last years I’ve been also honored to assist on the field Steve McCurry in several of his shootings in Europe, Africa, Asia and South America.
Lester’s reflection in the monitor is intended to resemble a man in a jail cell, evoking the director’s intended theme of imprisonment and escape from imprisonment. The sign behind him intentionally reads “Watch Your Step,” somewhat out of place for the typical american workplace, or is it?
