Melissa Vize. New Beginnings Disguised as Painful Endings, 2018. 24″ x 36″ Digital photography on gallery-wrapped canvas. $397
Melissa Vize began serious photography in 2017, when she purchased her first digital single-lens reflex camera (DSLR). Prior to that, she was exploring all over the city of Detroit with her cell phone and documenting its landscape, architecture, culture, and the evidence of change. Vize learned to master framing and that propelled her into a love of photography. With a focus on urban life, particularly in the City of Detroit, her most trusted city lens is the Canon 17-40mm L series. She considers herself fortunate to have captured Detroit between 2016 and 2019, during a low-pitched period of rapid transformation. Today, most of her photos are taken early in the morning when the city is quiet, as it used to be. Vize shoots low and likes to focus on depth of field and reflections. The resulting imagery reflects the way her brain operates: She finds, sees and understands the big picture first, then fill in the details later.
