Rachelle Mendez

Rachelle Mendez grew up in Northern California on acres of open land in a small rural community outside of Sacramento. After moving to Southern California to obtain a bachelors degree in Advertising/ Graphic Design she started exploring the idea of photographing her parent’s expansive land in a more graphic and concise way. This aesthetic lead to her first on going photo series; The Rural. Slowly evolving from the expansive landscapes to the highly congested landscapes of Los Angeles and Orange County’s suburbs, Rachelle created her most passionate and inclusive series; Minimal Hardscapes/ Flat Values.
