Grazina Wade was born and raised in Boston and later lived in Germany and New York. Her interest in photography started at an early age and she later enrolled into Tufts/Museum School. After being inspired by the works of Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Stieglitz and Paul Strand, Grazina pursued black and white photography of the New England landscape.
Years later while vacationing in Arizona, Grazina made her way to Canyon de Chelly, to see where Timothy O’Sullivan and Ansel Adams photographed the White House Ruins. Two weeks of exploring the desert, visiting Indian ruins, and experiencing the vastness changed her life. It was then that Grazina fell in love with the southwest.
Several months later she moved to Sedona and has since spent her time photographing a surreal world that makes up the stark and colorful magnificence of our city. Her work has been in gallery exhibitions in Boston, Connecticut, New York, Chicago, Sedona, and Lithuania. It is also in the collections of the Duxbury Art Complex Museum in Massachusetts, the Museum of Northern Arizona, and Vilnius University in Lithuania as well as some private Arizona collections.
