Her recent work, Caught reveals fish expressions in color portraits. The long term project began when Arrigo became the designated photographer on fishing trips circa 2004-2018. Arrigo’s long term photography projects uncover the meanings of coincidence in subject based photo projects that feel like fiction but are in fact, reality based, personal documentary.
