ART 380: Intermediate Photography
Digital Print; 8×10
I am experimenting with abstraction, and playing around with reflections in objects. This image is part of a series that is not yet completed.
ART 300: Photography II
Digital Photography; 11″ x 17″
Will be used as part of a series of 15-20 images, which will be compiled into one final portfolio to be presented at the end of the semester.
Statement: This is a collaborative project established between myself and the Hope CommUnity Center located in Apopka, Florida which emphasizes the connection between photography, art and activism. Drawing upon the photojournalistic styles of Wendy Ewald and Mary Ellen Mark, the final compilation will serve to provide a voice for this marginalized community, highlighting the issues that they must face as members of a minority group. My work is primarily focused on the youth group (middle to high school age) that assembles at HCC and their efforts to spread awareness about the DREAM act.

Title: Blue Angel War Machine
This image captures a jet fighter at an Air show in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in the Summer 2010.
This deadly machine performed tricks for all the people watching. War is distant and abstract for most of us. This image captures that feeling for me.
