THE OJAI ART CENTER PHOTOGRAPHY BRANCH

FEATURED ARTIST - Aliyah Zweig

 

Photography opens an entirely new world; one that is parallel to ours but holds more space and time to enjoy the beauty around us. For me, photography is a glorified observation, one that I absolutely love. Photography is the ability to view the world in different angles and to be able to create abstract realities.

 

I am a senior at Nordhoff High School and work as a barista at Coffee Connection. In the last six years I have become a diligent art photographer and photojournalist. I am self-taught and have learned all that I know from experience and lots of trial-and-error. I have had shows in both the Porch Gallery as well as Coffee Connection. My work has been featured in the Ojai Valley News and I work as the Head Photographer of Nordhoff High School’s ‘The Ranger’.

 

Through my photos I have been able to teach myself not only about art and the creativity of the human mind, but I have also been able to interact with the world knowing I have a place behind my camera. I am able to see people and places with new eyes and a heightened sense of perspective.
