About The Photographer And Handmade Photography Book Artist - Melanie De Cola

"John's Grill" by Melanie De Cola.

Melanie De Cola is an artist currently living in Reston, Virginia. She has a BA in art from the University of California, Santa Cruz. She also attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She has years of experience with black and white, color and digital photography. She experiments with her photographs using alternative processes and image transfers. Some of her photographs have been turned into lithographs using photolithographic plates as well as handmade books. Urban architecture and culture have been her main photographic focus in the past few years. The layering and intimate street scenes of America's cities provide the inspiration for many of her works. She is very aware of the narratives that can be built through photographs and the impressions they can leave. She has also sustained an interest in the mystery of found photography and what it says about the craft of photography and our society. She enjoys exploring the questions that found photography raises. More of her work can be viewed on her site
