BIO:

Alyssa Rosenheck is an internationally renowned interiors and architectural photographer, stylist, author, speaker, cancer survivor, and lifestyle expert.

As the founder of “The New Southern” movement (coffee table book out as a fall lead title 2020 via Abrams), Alyssa’s mission is to inspire others to lean into their creativity and reclaim their light, by highlighting those in and from the South producing work that unites and inspires growth. Following a consuming corporate career and a cancer diagnosis, photography allowed Alyssa to see a new way of doing business, a new way of living, and a new way to connect with others. Alyssa knows firsthand that creativity is a force for unity and purpose, and aims to inspire individuals to live courageously every day and to lean whole-heartedly into their creativity.
