Rissa Ochs

For her thesis body of work, Ochs examines intimacy through a series of photographs, books, and an installation project that includes a video documentary. Ochs explores various definitions of intimacy, especially the intimacy of sex, relationships, and sleep. She draws from her own experiences as well as more universal experiences. For her installation, Ochs recreates a home-like environment with comfortable furniture where you can view her documentary and look at the photo books.
