Alanna Airitam /// There Is Fear Or There Is Love /// E025
There is fear or there is love…a poignant thought left with us when we met Alanna Airitam. Alanna is a fine art portrait photographer best known for The Golden Age, a series of portraits shot with classic Rembrandt style lighting. Themes in her work revolve around representation and using art as a platform for marginalized voices. A New York native, Alanna grew up in Dallas, and currently resides in San Diego.
We were connected through her brother as he shared her work and we immediately thought she’d be a great guest to have join us. Her work is stunning, she’s self-taught and a simply wonderful human being. Enjoy this session.
