Ali Richards

Ali Richards has traveled from the United Kingdom for her residency at Kala. Richards is known for her works in a photo-documentary format that comment on our social and physical interaction with the environment. During her stay at Kala, Richards began work on a new series titled Jesusita Summerland, a photographic exploration of California’s summer fires that have recently ravaged areas such as Santa Barbara. Her tragic yet stunning photographs present the aftermath of the violent and fiery destruction of formally luxurious mansions and the charred remnants of the so-called “good life.”
