The name is Isamar Rebollar and I’m a pretty hardworking girl. Always busy. Most people know me as Izzy. I am currently seventeen years old and attend Animo Venice Charter High School – not far at all from Venice Arts; it usually takes me between 5 to 10 minutes to walk there. I was born in the famous Beverly Hospital and raised in East L.A. I have lived in various cities other than my hometown, including Ciudad de Mexico, Inglewood, and Westchester. I just moved and so I currently live in Watts, located in South L.A. I came across Venice Arts after my sophomore year. Since then I’ve been coming here as a student and now I am currently a paid intern. Other than photography I am really into music; just like my camera I have to have music playing 24/7. Before coming to Venice Arts I knew the basics of photography but now I can go from capturing an image with my film camera to processing my own film to printing an image in a dark room. Ever since I can remember I’ve loved art, primarily photography. Photographs are simply amazing to me. They are the captured moments that give me good laughs, put a smile, a frown, or a tear on my face. When I look at a photograph that I have taken, it helps me remember every little detail that occurred before, during and after the shot. It is almost as if I can go back in time and relive that second. I’m really into photographing people, almost every photograph I have taken while attending Venice Arts have been of people. I guess its because I don’t always get the same boring thing. See, when capturing a second of someone’s life I always see different expressions. I get bored easily. This is another reason why when I take photos I am always looking for angles and different ways to compose my shots so I can describe the way I experience time. It is always a surprising and keeps me intrigued because I never know what I will get or what I did not get. Photographs are my sense of vision, sense of smell, sense of taste, sense of touch and sense of hearing. They are my memories.
