Photographer #162: Alejandra Laviada

Alejandra Laviada, 1980, Mexico, studied painting at the Rhode Island School of Design and received a masters degree in photography from the School of Visual Arts. She goes into abandoned buildings for long-term periods to photograph the objects, often transformed to sculptures that she finds in these spaces. Alejandra therefore not only records these disappearing spaces, but also suggests stories about the people that have once inhabited these buildings. The following images come from the series Photo Sculptures, Juarez 56 and Typologies.
