Rachelle Mozman’s series of digitally-constructed portraits, entitled Costa del Este and American Exurbia, examine the surreal and oddly beautiful quality of childhood within the gated communities of Central America and the United States. Her images raise questions about the glamour and the price of privilege in these environments that strive to create security in isolation. Mozman plans to edit and print for a large-format portfolio of digital prints during her residency. She will also be outside shooting new images for another series in which she photographs Girl Scout troops and their own unique culture.
Rachelle received an MFA from Tyler School of Art. She has exhibited extensively in America and Panama, both in solo and group shows.
