    Analy Martinez
    Intern

    Analy is a first-generation college student, attending Columbia College Chicago completing a B.F.A. in Photography with a concentration in Fashion/Commercial work. Analy is a transfer student from the College of DuPage where she completed her AAS in Photography. Analy's work focus on capturing and emphasizing the beauty in every person, challenging the normal ideals of what beauty is, and helping society learn to love themselves for who they are and how they look. In her work, she finds it very important to provide a wide range of cultural representation that isn't highlighted as much in the photography industry.
