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.

"The Edges Are No Longer Parallel" – 5:04

A while ago I watched an art:21 episode on Ann Hamilton and fell in love with her work, specifically her Face to Face series. It's genius, really. She created a pinhole camera that she places in her mouth. When she opens her mouth the film is exposed. Because the shape of the mouth is recorded in the exposure, the final print looks like the shape of an eye with the subject in the center or the pupil of the eye. Pretty cool, huh? Here is the art:21 video. It's pretty long but if you start it at 41:06 she talks about this particular project.
