Even with Dia De Los Muertos still months away (November 2nd), we hereat Hi-Fructose are already looking forward to this year’s Day of theDead celebration (keep a lookout for our feature on Silvia Ji’spaintings in the upcoming HF Vol. 16!) Sacramento-based photographerand former protégé to Estevan Oriol, Amanda Lopez will be continuing on her themed portraiture series with an upcoming show at Free Gold Watch on June 18th.
Amanda recently told Hi-Fructose that “the projectis something that came together last year during dia de los muertos.The first few portraits that we created were well received so I decideto continue on with the project. It’s really the first time that I’veworked this way. I usually work out doors in natural light or in asubject’s environment, so to go into a studio and work with a team wasa big change but a really fun one.”
