Marisa Montellano - Photography

Location: FSY Architects (downstairs), 2902 Knox Ave.



Marisa Osollo Montellano is a Los Angeles based artist seeking to reveal and catalog. Her intimate Los Angeles cityscapes are the documentation of a city in flux, juxtaposing the city's illusions with images too often lost in the blinding brightness of Southern California sunshine. Marisa's images reflect an insatiable need to reexamine what she has known her whole life. Her photos unfold as a dreamlike love affair with a city who's dark and abandoned side she refuses let cloud her sense of wonder and magic. A writer as well as a photographer, Marisa was born and raised in north east Los Angeles and has worked in the photo industry for over 20 years.
