Alison Scarpulla is an American visual artist and photographer. She has lived in New York her whole life. When she was 15 she received her first 35mm SLR and entered a photography class in high school. She started experimenting in the darkroom with double exposures and different developing methods. Everything came pretty naturally. Alison’s photographs have a touch of morbidity and psych. Scarpulla has always appreciated images with desaturated colours, but the colours and graininess in her photos come from a mix of expired film, drug store processing and possibly a dirty and wet lens. That makes Alison’s work really unique and attractive. Digital images never give the same warm feeling or texture. Most of her inspiration comes from old books, different cultures and traditions, old films, diaries, found writings, and just the all-round energy of nature.
