Black and White Dress, Paris, France




Alison Lake is an American fine art photographer based in California. She has had a lifelong involvement in the Arts, and received a BA in art history from the University of California at Santa Barbara. Her first influences came from viewing the images of early 20th century European photographers such as Andre Kertesz, Josef Sudek, and Albert Renger-Patzsch. She then studied photography extensively, assisted in commercial studios, and continued with her own creative projects. With a background in traditional methods, she has transitioned to the digital process with the same dedication to print craftsmanship.

During travels to many countries, she has been able to combine her love of photography and of learning about the world. The collected black and white or warm tone images represent a spectrum of subjects from the human-made and natural environments, and reveal a preference for the unexpected and often overlooked fragments of a place. Another area of interest is still life. With this work she can explore concepts as well as study the interplay of objects and light. Her images have been exhibited throughout the USA and beyond, have appeared in numerous publications, and are included in the permanent collection of the Monterey Museum of Art.
