A recipient of CCA's Faculty Honors scholarship, Rosey Lakos graduated with High Distinction.
Lakos teaches photography in private lessons and is working toward opening a darkroom that will function as a rental facility and educational space that offers an emphasis on historical processes.
Her photography practice is dedicated to the craft of film photography, and she specializes in creating custom sessions for her clients.
She operates an old-time novelty photo booth using instant film and hand-crafted backdrops, called Camera Girl & Her Novelty Photobooth. Additionally, she started a monthly networking group for creative independents, called the Reticulum of Imaginings and Reformation.
For the past two years she's been documenting the filming of an independent movie set during World War II as well as having been commissioned to create photographs for a fine-hosiery boutique within a post-war environment.
Lakos shows her work at local First Friday events and was recently chosen as the featured artist for her show, My Day With Louise.
Rosey Lakos lives in a one-room cabin at the end of a dirt road in the Santa Cruz Mountains, and she is currently remodeling a 1950s trailer into her home office.
