Cindy Pitou Burton began her career in New York as a photojournalist for The New York Times. She has photographed for television at CBS, NBC and PBS, magazines and corporate clients such as Pfizer and Revlon. Pitou Burton studied photography at The International Center for Photography, the School of Visual Arts in New York City and the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles.
Upon moving to the west coast she explored alternative photographic processes, at first working with large transfers of Polaroid prints onto watercolor paper as well as digitalizing and manipulating her black and white photographs, creating limited edition fine art prints. Her prints of flowers, photographed on a light box, create an x-ray effect. She has recently begun adding photographs from her travels in Europe, Mexico, Vietnam and the Galapagos to her studio walls.
Ms. Burton has exhibited her work in galleries in NYC and Los Angeles and is represented by Getty Images in Seattle. She is a member of the American Society of Media Photographers and the Ojai Studio Artists.
