Larissa Ramey is an artist from Leesburg, Virginia. She is persuing her BFA in Photography at the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design and is currently based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Ramey explores the inclusion of intimacy and interference of both human interaction and ecological traditions in an investigative process by inserting herself into the environment which creates a juxtaposition based on interaction with the landscape and transforming it as an artist, conservationist, and being.
Through her series, Retrieved Landscapes, the focus is to embrace our awareness of the earth and to start a plan of action to preserve and protect the earth. By observation and research, Ramey is interested in incorporating the mindset of human connection and the effects to other beings and the surroundings we inhabit.
