Lissa Rivera provides an uncensored look into American educational institutes like private and public education facilities, greek letter societies, and community colleges.
She states, "By photographing without human presence I hope to create a stage-like setting, so that it is up to the viewer to project their own ideas of how they might experience each area. Through these portfolios I hope to touch upon both the advantages and limitations of each education."
Rivera's portfolio is intriguing and exciting. She manages to give each mysterious space an emotion and personality, even without the use of a human presence. I will never look at educational institutes quite the same.
