I saw these photos yesterday and simply loved them. Full or rich color and raw gritty imagery, they are beautiful, sexy, whimsical and refreshing on a hot city day...

Amy found Lisa Candela at a small gallery in Soho called The Candela/Decker gallery, and got Lisa's story:

"Candela takes all her photographs on film, then makes limited edition digital archival pigment prints on this wonderful heavy watercolor paper. And in her gallery on Crosby street -- you can see each encased like little treasures in hand-made frames of driftwood (made by her partner David Decker).

Some are small, almost devotional works... and others large enough to let you step into the sunshine..."

I recommend a trip to Lisa's website and to her gallery if you have a chance.

Happy July Weekend!
