Who are you, and who do you photograph?
My name is Liza Mandelup. I’m 24 years old, I’m a photographer, filmmaker, artist… I photograph my friends, people I meet during my travels, and people I find interesting and exciting.

What’s your life like?
Right now im getting my MFA at school of visual arts and freelancing in photo/video world.

Where’s home?
I’ve recently made Brooklyn home. In the past 6 years I’ve lived in Boston. New Orleans, Prague, and Los Angeles.

Why do you take pictures?
I started taking pictures to document my travels…now I’m just addicted to taking photos. I like to shoot people who I think have an interesting story, a different perspective…I try to capture that as much as possible in my photography.
