Marisa Chafetz – Photography

This set of images by Marisa Chafetz, a young American photographer, sees her returning to her family home and capturing the people she grew up with. With a strong nostalgic feeling and so much warmth behind the images, this set, entitled: We are Ugly but We Have the Music, makes the viewer as if perhaps they are a teenager again. We love how the act of training the camera on specific moments can heighten their importance, making the mundane incredibly poignant and profound.

This is the power of photography!
