Driven by experience and wanderlust, New York based photographer and filmmaker Liza Mandelup follows her instincts and intuitions, wherever they may take her.
A serial wanderer, New York based photographer and filmmaker Liza Mandelup started taking pictures to document her travels. Driven by experience and wanderlust, she follows her instincts and intuitions, wherever they may take her. She is currently studying for a masters of fine arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York, and recently released her first self-published book Give Yourself To The Sea. Shot on the island of Menorca, off the coast of Spain, the book is a dreamy seaside saga, featuring her close friends and muses.
– When I watch a film or look through a really good photo book it serves as an escape for me, it takes my mind to a place I haven’t physically been to but I can feel something real from it. I’m trying to give that back as much as possible in my work, Liza says about her work.
– All I need is an idea of where I’m going and who I’m shooting and I let the experience take me from there.
