The cave is the symbol of mother earth. The waterfall represents the paths a person follows.
To dive into the world within, a place between heaven and earth.

Cheraine’s work covers every aspect of photographic production, from
photographing to manipulating her images.
In her photography, you will often find fauna that she has photographed in their own natural habitat, in the hope to make the audience more aware that fauna can be left in peace for the final photograph.
Essentially, she creates imaginary worlds from scratch, extracted, created, and unified from real parts of nature and locations she photographs across the globe.
Its location is undefinable, and by long labor of collecting and unifying different photographs, it transports us to a constructed imaginary reality.
