My photo
Hi, my name is Allison. I’m a photographer based in Boise, ID. I specialize in interiors with an editorial flair. I received my Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from Boise State University. I believe my education is what sets me apart from your average person with a fancy camera. If anything, it shows you how damn dedicated I am to my craft. When I’m not shooting for clients, I work on my personal projects. Work from my ongoing photographic series, “Spaces of Cultural Comfort,” has been exhibited locally at the Boise Art Museum and three pieces have been acquired by the City of Boise to be included in the Boise Visual Chronicle, a permanent collection of artworks. When I’m not photographing, I like to go out thrifting. Please check out my Etsy store for badass vintage housewares and accessories. I’m a quiet person by nature but contrary to popular opinion, I’m not shy. I curse like a sailor around my friends + family and sometimes on this blog.

"First of the Gang to Die" -3:38

Louis Carlos Bernal is definitely in my top ten photographers list. I wish he would have had the notoriety he deserved while he was still alive because his images are beautiful and they say so much about our culture. His images create a visual narrative of life in the barrios of the Southwest. He was able to capture, so successfully, the cultural values of Mexican-Americans. His work informs my own in that, the core of his work deals with identity through environmental portraits, more specifically Mexican-American identity.
