Becky DiGiglio, Photographer
Native of New Jersey now based in San Diego, CA, Becky has spent her life exploring the tri-state area and beyond in search of capturing images both beautiful and bizarre. She graduated in 2010 with a major in English from Rutgers University, and in 2011 with a Master’s in English education from the Rutgers Graduate School of Education. She is currently a teacher of Language Arts. While photography and literature may at first glance seem like a relatively unrelated pairing of interests, she feels that there is an important link between the two which drives her to both: the story. Where one uses words, the other uses images, offering any one of limitless interpretations for the viewer. Particularly passionate about capturing people, her live music photography has been used on various websites, and she was also a featured work for a competition hosted by Canada-based Alt Hotel.
