was born in 1989 in Los Angeles. She earned a BFA in photography from Bard College in 2011 and currently lives and works in New York City. Freilich views photography as a first-person description of moments in time. She’s drawn to the idea of creating photographs that are a materialization of a constant interaction between herself and her environment — both what and how she sees. These photographs aim to dislocate and re-contextualize mundane settings. She’s attracted to these particular moments, on a very basic level, for their aesthetic value. They represent Freilich’s attempt at looking at the relationship between an actual location and the repeated image of that place, similar to the sort of effect you get when you repeat a word over and over again until its meaning warbles and refracts and becomes lost.
