Half beach paradise, half run-down squalor. This is a look at the town of Isla Vista, CA. Forty pages of beautiful photographs by the artist reveal the beauty in old, cheaply built homes as well as the night life of the student population that overruns the town.
An artist in many different mediums, Vanessa's books lend themselves to bright, beautiful images and good design. She has been photographing since age twelve and has recently produced her first book, Isla Vista. This is the first of many books to come. Planned for future release are photobooks about Paris and Japan as well as a collection of her own personal artwork over the last four years.
