Marcela Gallo (collagelamar) was born in Lima, Peru 20 something years ago. She received her BFA in Professional Photographic Illustration from Rochester Institute of Technology in December of 2014, with a concentration in Advertising Photography. She is currently interning and doing freelance work in Austin, Texas while she searches for her dream full-time job, one which will not only inspire her every day, but also enable her to learn and grow as an artist and as an image-making professional. Although she is often exploring the various fields within Photography, she is particularly fond of still life, collage, and conceptual image making. She enjoys working with an open mind; sometimes this involves taking hands off a planned outcome and trusting that her creative eye will catch exceptional moments and solve minor complications on the spot.
