ASHLIE CHAVEZ

Name- My name is Ms. Ashlie Chavez.
Age- I'm 23.
Where are you from?- I'm from LA County.
Your equipment- I shoot solely analog, 35mm and 120.  I'm not picky as to what cameras I shoot with but I try to stay away from Polaroids (or any other instant film), Holga's and flash.  I prefer fully manual cameras from the 80's.  My favorite camera right now is my Pentax 645. She's a beast.
 
Influences and photographers you like- I'm influenced by my own personal experiences and I'm driven by human notions.  I admire all kinds of different artists.  I like Elinor Carucci's work, especially her Closer series.  I enjoy Thomas Struth's portraits.  Also, Alec Soth, Stephen Shore, Diane Arbus, William Eggleston, and Egon Schiele.
A little about you- I spend most of my time with my twin sister, we collaborate a lot.  She is also an artist, her website is amberchavez.com.  I love animals, bible history, alcohol, my son, collage, and binding books. I only like making work that has concept and reason behind it.  I prefer natural light. I dislike photographers that solely seek to document candid illicit behavior.
