Alyssa Gerasimoff

In 2020 I graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a degree in Furniture Design and Sustainability Studies. I am now in my first semster pursuing a master’s degree in Food Studies at NYU and questioning if I made the right decision. I have come to realize that I am a design thinker and perahps my masters degree should be in a design field.

I love to work in all mediums, 3D, 2D, digital and am always trying to explore new materials and technologies. I lived in Berlin, Germany for two years and after figuring out my career in NYC I hope to move back. If you want to add me to your team or offer some advice please don’t hesitate to reach out.

This was a relatively fast projected completed during a Darkroom Photography course. The aim of this photo series was to challenge the ways in which food scraps and seen and to present them as the central subject of photographs. Image composition, scale, and subject matter explorations are shown in the selection on this page. Ultimately, these images, and other film photographs became an integral part of my bachelor thesis book, Empathies of Consumption.
