Mandy Rosen is a young photographer currently living in Southern California. Mandy started doing landscape and photojournalism 5 years ago before getting seriously into conceptual and fine art portraiture and self-portraiture: “Photography is a way for me to escape reality into an ethereal realm; where I can defy gravity, walk on water, play a different character, and make dreams come true. Anything I imagine I can create. Music, film, and personal life experiences serve as inspiration for my work. Desolation, isolation, loneliness, pain, self-discovery, childhood nostalgia, and the pursuit of happiness are some of the common themes found in my photos.”
