Grethe Irene Einarsen jobber fotobasert med bilder og installasjon. Arbeidene befinner seg gjerne i grenseland mellom det dokumentariske og det iscenesatte. Det nordnorske landskapet er ofte bakteppe i bildene hennes, og menneskelig fremmedgjøring er et stadig tilbakevendende tema. Einarsen er opptatt av enkeltindividers kompleksitet, og lar det banale og hverdagslige gå hånd i hånd med universelle, eksistensielle spørsmål.
