ARTIST PROFILE: Aliza Eliazarov
Nourishing Minds in the United States: Delivering the Abundance to Those in Need, with Love
Nowhere is this vision more evident than in the work of Aliza Eliazarov. Aliza is an award-winning photographer and author making creative portraiture, conceptual still-life, and documentary images. Her work has been exhibited and published widely both in the US and abroad, including at the 2019 UNFAO in Beijing and The Paris Biennale, as well as in The Atlantic and the Washington Post. She is also a cover-story photographer at Modern Farmer magazine.
With a focus on animals, agriculture and food, she has worked with leading
farmers, restaurants and companies to create compelling and memorable imagery for her clients. Aliza has spent the past year working on her first book On the Farm: Heritage & Heralded Animals Breeds in Portraits & Stories, to be released this November by Ten Speed Press.
Through her creative use of discarded food items reclaimed from bakeries, markets and manufacturing facilities, Aliza’s work in food-rescue and her exhibition, “Waste Not” have captured the attention of audiences across the country and raised awareness of the accelerating global food-waste crisis.
