Monica Deife is originally from Washington State in the USA, but now lives in Nara Prefecture. She resumed her interest in photography when she realized her iPhone had a camera. She learned the basics of photography from an online course and eventually switched to a mirrorless camera. Since then, she has fed her passion with many online courses. Recently, she enjoys photographic expressionism, works made using Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) and layering. See more of her work at Instagram: @monicainnara.
