Victoria {a Hoboken resident} wishes to challenge the viewer’s perspective to search for the inherent beauty that exists within everything; a philosophy she wishes to capture in each photograph. The subjects of her work often go unidentified, and perceived as things they are not. Victoria hopes to spark conversation by creating pieces that elicit mystery and intrigue.

    Her abstract photography can be rotated and displayed in any direction. Victoria finds fascination in how each mind is wound differently and feels that this is part of the wonder her art provides. Victoria will be selling her photography prints, and one-of-a-kind custom framed pieces.
