Thanks for stopping by! My name is Carissa Lewis. But hey, that only means something if you know who I am.
Who I Am
I bring design into everything I do, so you may find influences from other areas of my life. I graduated from U.C. Berkeley with a B.A. in astrophysics. I am currently pursuing research, but you can read more about those adventures here.
What I Do
Quite simply, I document the people I meet and places I have come to appreciate.
Photography: I often focus on conceptual photography that is grounded in a particular emotion. By doing this, I hope to elevate a scene without sacrificing the relatability or genuity of a photo.
Art: I distinguish personal art (i.e. “general art”) from commissioned/nonprofit work (pretty much everything else), so you can clearly see which works come from a collaborative lens and which come from my mind alone.
What I’ve Done
Throughout high school and college, I focused on journalistic photography and design in Northern California. I later moved to Los Angeles and began focusing more on conceptual photography. I have worked with individuals, families, companies, and universities.
