Lisa Guerriero was raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles during the 70s.
She picked up her first camera at fifteen and hasn't put one down since. Her first few years were spent photographing the streets of Hollywood as a teenager, while attending Hollywood High School, and printing in the community darkroom on the weekends.
Her fascination with Americana started after years of spending summer vacations in 50s motels with her family.
At the age of nineteen, she started working in the movie and television industry as a Camera Assistant. Five years ago, she decided to leave Hollywood for small-town America and began concentrating solely on her personal long-term documentary photo projects.
Her work primarily focuses on subcultures and the underdog. She spends half the year traversing the U.S. to photograph people in small towns, as well as the changing landscape around them. You can always find her in the summer, eating corn-on-the-cob at a county fair, in some Midwestern town.
