In this ongoing series what started out as an exploration of self portraiture, has devolved into the study of reflections and distorted perspectives on the verge of abstraction. I am not trying to re-represent an absent object or space but rather trying to create an image that rejects the clearly recognizable. I am striving for the audience to have a unique experience when viewing these pieces, if it be claustrophobia, confusion or even misinterpretation, my work is meant to frustrate rather than clarify, chaos is the leading motivator behind my work.

8″x8″ Digital Prints in a series of about 20 total

In this series, I am exploring the place that I call ‘home’. After being away for a few months, I began to notice the quirks and interesting oddities that make up the environment surrounding me on the most personal level. In the end, I am hoping to become reacquainted with my home trough these images as they become more and more familiar. As for the size of the prints, smaller seems to be working because of the personal subject photographed.

This work is about the questions that are asked about gender. Focusing on the stereotypes of females and the uncomfortable feelings the arise when a woman steps out of her stereotypical female boundaries. This work is a peek into the world of a non-traditional woman’s life, and to ultimately ask the viewer what these feminine standards are and where they derive from

Images in the series: 10-15

Memories often fade and seem hazy as we attempt to recall what has happened. In this series I am drawing on that characteristic of our memories. The people tend to be faded and as we begin to ponder on the memory, it becomes more clear.

This is a new series I’m working on. Its main focus is on portraying objects and environments we generally do not notice, missing out on their unique qualities. This series is a work in progress so any comments would be greatly appreciated.

I’m currently working on a series in night photography and the way that artificial light during the evenings creates a shift in mood and perspective for the audience. I would like to gain feedback on audience perception about my photographs, both positively and negatively.

Digital Prints; 8 x 10

I am in the beginning stages of my photographic life and have recently been learning a lot about photoshop and how to think more like an artist. I have always been photographing the every day and want to explore photography more as an art form. The photos I have included are images I took at various music festivals in the summer of 2008. I enjoy observing individuals and crowd behaviors and I tend to use my camera to do so. The series which I will be starting this weekend is going to focus more on identity portrayals so stay tuned for those!

Series that has 3 images thus far with intentions of expanding.

This is a series of just bodyscapes at the moment but I have intentions to expand to a broader area than just nude bodyscapes for this particular series. My intention was to have the viewer focus on the lines that bodies create when joined in a puzzle piece sort of fashion. When I expand this series, at the very least I intend to focus on the joining of hands, heads and feet. Later on I want to find a way to reshoot these photographs I am presenting right now so that a bed is not cutting into the figures in the photographs.

Series of photos for my senior show.
Total number of images in series is TBD.

Presenting a series of images in which I explore the multiple ways you can murder someone, and how forensic photography captures evidence of crime. Almost a “dream like” series in which I kill my husband many different, varying ways and times.
