Melissa Golden lives in the DC metro area, but she isnâ€™t really from anywhere in particular. Her nomadic childhood, courtesy of the United States military, has led to a life marked by continuous change, renewal and wanderlust. Her work is influenced by all the places sheâ€™s called home at some point- the brazen oddity and beauty of Southern California, the tradition of the Deep South, the storm light of rural Florida, the heady intrigue of the Middle East and the stiff formality of the District of Columbia. She may not know where sheâ€™s going next, but her pictures help her to keep track of where sheâ€™s been.
Itâ€™s that time of the year again! Time to make your photographic gift list in hopes that Santa will bring you everything your camera bag desires. Also, itâ€™s a great time to get your last-minute shopping in before the end of the year so you can deduct the purchases on your taxes!
