Marisa Aragona

San Francisco

Quirky, sensitive, detailed, off beat, bright and directed, uncanny compositions and multiple strings of reality. 

Marisa focuses all her attention on the moments where human body and environment become indistinguishable. Her gaze for scenography and unique settings reflects her innate sensitivity for emotions and details. She is deeply interested in uncovering and yet also obscuring our human vulnerability. Obsessed with forms and strange moments, Her photographs are oddly impersonal and a bit too close all at the same time.

Marisa Aragona’s photo-based work and installations have been exhibited in New York, San Francisco, Oakland, Washington, D.C. and Seattle as well as traveled internationally as part of the “Madamorfozes” Project. Recent venues include Jen Bekman Gallery, Steven Woolf Fine Arts and University of the Arts. Her photographs have been published in Photo Review Journal, curated by Lesley Martin of Aperture Magazine. She received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2005 and her BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York in 2000. Currently, Marisa is the Director of Exhibitions at The Red Poppy Art House and a freelance photographer for hire.
