Alyssa McDonald is a New England native and photographic artist based in Boston. She graduated with honors from Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography in 2016.
Currently, she humbly works along side esteemed photographers and mentors Abelardo Morell & Laura McPhee, assisting them with their photographic endeavors. In her spare time, she continues to try and carve her own story out of the world with photographs.
Her photographs remain rooted in a psychological terrain through her intense observation of familiar landscapes and characters over the changing course of the seasons and passing of years. Each composition is steeped with ancestral history as well as experiences and stories of wonder and discovery in the natural world. With these symbolic values and narratives in mind, she aims her camera at intertwined histories, origins and fates, overlapping and paralleling the immediate with the infinite.
