Signed in margin on recto. Edition of 25.Marina Karella (born July 17, 1940 in Athens) is a Greek artist. She is married to Prince Michael of Greece and Denmark.Karella has exhibited extensively in Europe and the US and is included in the permanent collections of the Pompidou Center, the Vorres Museum of Modern Art in Athens, the Menil Collection and the Baron Thyssen Bornemisza Collection. She has also done costume and theater design for the National Theater of Greece, the Theater of Zurich and the National Theater of Piraeus.Karella's photographs have been published in magazines about style, including "Issue", at the request of photographer Jack Pierson. The ways beauty and glamour are portrayed in the fashion world are never far below the surface of Karella's portraits.From the early figures on, Karella has frequently used photography as part of her creative process. She does not treat the camera as a device to see with—her images do not have a photographically produced feeling to them. Rather, she uses the camera to get ideas for composition and perhaps gesture. With those suggestions in hand, she often sets the camera aside and constructs the image with the manual means at her disposal. Karella is particularly sensitive to the qualities of media, and she will make definite decisions as to which medium she wishes to work in at a given time.
