Mahala Mazerov is a fine art photographer based in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
She sustained a traumatic brain injury while working and spent 7 years in hospital rehabilitation. From these experiences arise layered themes of destruction, transcendence, and the opportunity to determine who we become and how we will live.
Working with alternative photographic processes that include gold leaf and translucent vellum, her images reflect ever-present radiance accessible in the face of personal and collective suffering.
She is the founder of Art Hope Healing, a philanthropic initiative to provide beautiful artworks to under-resourced communities and individuals.
