series of 7

My work for this project was inspired by the movie Seven. After watching this movie, I knew I wanted to make sloth, lust, wrath, greed, vanity, gluttony, and envy my subjects. I wanted these to be very vibrant and sensual, and to have the glamorous appeal that such a forbidden subject can sometimes have.

2 prints from a series of 20 prints in progress

In this series I am exploring items that collect around living spaces, and therefore create records of daily life. Though unintentional, these items become a keepsake of sorts. The series focuses on subjects such as dust, mold, stains, and objects that would normally be thrown out quickly, yet seem to accumulate.

The series is called “Consumer Reflections,” and there are about 20 images all together.

Consumer Reflections is a series in which the reflection of a masked woman appears against artificial mannequins and posters in the windows of different retail or commercial establishments. The masked woman gazes longingly at the bright displays, feeling both alienated by and drawn to their promise of beauty and confidence. Her facial expressions are hidden by the mask, making her appear as lifeless as the carefully constructed facades. The line blurs and confuses between what is real and what is constructed, what is reflected and what is actually present, and what is alive and what is a commercial construction.

Number of total images in series: 40

Artist statement:
The visual devices employed were specifically chosen to represent a void of creativity I was experiencing during the book’s creation.The series progresses from a blanket of white at the beginning, myself then appearing as a mere speck, a continual infiltrating zoom that at the climax isolates the essential features of my face, and finally a recession back to a speck and then nothing. The title itself has been appropriated from the novel based movie “Never Ending Story”, wherein the lack of imagination of modern humans has materialized into a catastrophic force, “the nothing”, that obliterates the world of Fantasia.

This were taken in the science building at my college. It started out as just a “film noir” type project, but I am thinking of expanding it to compare and contrast places of worship and places of science and the stereotypes associated with each. I am interested in exploring whether the environment we choose to surround ourselves with aids in creating stereotypes.

This was a collaborative series dealing with social personas and the tools we use to enable those personas. We often put up shields or masks to guard and even hide our truest selves to the outside world.

These photos are from a series of environmental portraits I presented. I feel that all the images in the series were very successful due to how I went about capturing the images. All the people I photographed in the series I did not
know prier to the shoot. The whole purpose of the series was to see how the individuals would interact with the camera and their surroundings. The whole process proved to be entirely different from person to person.

2 Images in a 8 Image series

These images come from a series that I shot after a physical fight. Each image was meant to articulate a specific emotion I dealt with and how my physical pain was intertwined with my emotional struggle.

Series: The Vulnerability of Women

I am continuing in the series “The Vulnerability of Women,” but I am experimenting with representing more than just the “before” images. I have started to stage photos to show women being vulnerable during and after attacks as well. If you have any comments or suggestions, I’m open to new ideas!

My project involves several photo essays on suburban moms. This is just the beginning of my exploration of these moms as they define their lives, both including and aside from their husbands and/or children. My hope is to include moms in all different stages of being a parent, but what I find most dynamic is the way her identity shifts over time, becoming most apparent either as a new mom, or as her children begin to leave home.
