About Lisa Franklin

I am a photographer and fiction writer living and loving photography in Walnut Creek, California, a suburb of San Francisco. I'm fortunate to reside so close to such a diverse and colorful world, where I do most of my shooting. On the city's streets, I strive to capture moments that tell the stories of who we are. Sometimes I get lucky.

 

 

Artist's Statement

We’re all the same, except that we’re not. We’re all connected and yet we’re separate. I’m interested in our commonalities and differences, the ways we connect with and disconnect from one another and the world around us. 

 

I’m drawn, too, to solitude--what one existentialist refers to as “the glory of being alone.” Some people might confuse solitude for loneliness. Loneliness, I think, is an altogether different beast: heavy with longing, looking through glass at the crowd. Solitude is content to sit on either side of the window.
