Olivia Malone was born and raised on the east side of Los Angeles. She received her BFA in Photography and Imaging from NYU Tisch School of the Arts in 2004. She divides her time traveling between Los Angeles and where she lives now in New York. Her photography explores the transitions between youth and adulthood, emphasizing the period where freedom and independence define the essence of youth's unabashed allure. Using subjects handpicked from her life, she utilizes symbolic locations and real people to convey concepts that draw upon her own experiences in a symbiotically fantastical and candid world. Olivia has exhibited in group shows in Edinburgh, New York, Los Angeles and Austin.
