"Virgin Surfboard", 19X19, hand-made driftwood frame. ed 3/7

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

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.
