Introducing Lisa Candela's color-saturated photographs from her Sayulita series. See more luscious images of endless summer below...

"Green Bikinis" 9 x 6.5, edition: 1/7

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...

The Candela/Decker gallery has a mix of vintage clothing, antiques, rare books, and artwork -- right now hers, other times other artists -- and feels like you've stepped into a vacation in contrast to the heat and bustle of Soho. Candela is also the curator of the estate of artist Dan Eldon - whose sketchbooks, journals and photographs are a core inspiration and can be found throughout the gallery.

Get over and enjoy all the color -- the gallery is located at 31 Crosby Street, New York, NY 10013. 212-343-1717. Inquiries about the works featured here? Please contact the artist directly via email.
