Gizara's series of infrared photographs entitled "Surreal Escapes" is a mysterious set of images that transport the viewer to other-worldly places. "Lost Angeles" depicts decrepit bungalows, signs and store fronts that are quickly disappearing in lieu of their shiny, new, characterless replacements. "Strange Beauty" is a series of iconic images taken while traveling around the world and "The Others" appear to be a nostalgic and tieless series of portraits in landscapes.
Gizara's infrared photographic series "Surreal Escapes" was shown at the Annenberg Space for Photography's Iris Night Series and a solo show at the G2 Gallery in Venice. Saint John's Hospital in Santa Monica displayed a rotating exhibit of the the "Strange Beauty" photographs on the Atrium Digital Wall and throughout the hospital. Her photograph of Santa Monica beach were included in the opening show at The Annenberg Beach House and Bloomingdales in Santa Monica purchased three large "Strange Beauty" photographs for their front lobby.
