Brighton Beach and Coney Island are a constant source of inspiration for Eliza as it is one of the last “authentic” and unselfconscious locations in New York. The rest of her inspiration is drawn from 1970s New York and Punk culture. Eliza currently lives and works in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, and is a recent BFA Photography graduate of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
