Quite the Neighborhood

Quite the Neighborhood

Artist Ysabel LeMay takes her camera with her on walks around the neighborhood, documenting the plant life she encounters. Then she reassembles the pictures into collages such as Living Out Loud (48 inches by 89 inches c-print, $8,700). "Much of what I photograph is dead or dying, so in a way, I’m giving it new life," says LeMay, who is represented locally by Judith Liegeois. ysabellemay.com
