Statement

Ashira Siegel grew up Hasidic in Los Angeles, CA. She learned how to swim before she learned how to walk, learned to ride a bicycle at 5 years old, and started shooting photos when she was 8 years old.  Ashira lived in Worcester, MA and then Jerusalem before moving to Brooklyn, NY where she became enmeshed in urban bicycle culture while studying at Hunter College. Now back in Los Angeles, Ashira works in various methods of printing, sewing, photography, glass and ceramics.  She remains loyal to documenting as a way of life and regrets ever leaving the house without a camera.

Ashira is a member of Swimming Cities, Smockshop, and a secret screen printing studio in downtown LA, loosely called The Scum Dungeon.
