ART 314: Extended Photography

digital inkjet prints; 8″ x 10″
Series: still in progress; estimated 10-15 images
My work is typically composed of self-portraiture, and with this series I have been really introspective, possibly more so than usual. I think everybody spends a considerable amount of time trying to figure themselves out, and my way of doing that is very literal and visual. Even though this work is extremely personal and unabashedly about myself, my hope is that it will feel relatable to the viewer.
Art 380: Intermediate Photography
digital print; 8.5″ x 11″.
In a series of about 10.
I am focusing on shooting portraits, but placing objects in between the camera and subject such as a window or curtain. I want to show that each individual has flaws and impurities whether they be physical or emotional.

Digital Print Installation
These are two images from a instillation series of images and non-photographic elements that deal with the visual glut that one is confronted with every day. Images of consumption, sex, violence and mass consumerism are bombarded at us daily, this is my attempt to visually map out and deal with these issues.

About the work:
This series is one thread of a larger investigation I am making of the relationship between humans and the objects produced in their representation. I am interested in the cultural significance of the conception, execution, and consumption of such objects. In this study, I have chosen to restrict myself to commercially produced dolls and figurines, now antique, that are marketed for resale through antique dealers.
ART 300: Photography II
Digital Prints; 8.5” x 11”
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.
This series takes portraiture photography into a new perspective combining both psychology and photography into one medium. As a series, the work investigates the human mind and that one glimpse/moment that the human is in at the time the picture was taken. Almost like a mishap but that delves so much further into the psychological mindset of the human at that exact moment in time. Bringing together the idea of what the human is thinking and feeling compared to what the person looking at the photograph is thinking and feeling; the inner core of us (what we feel) versus our reputation or what other people think or in this case what other people read about us from this one image.

The first photograph is from a motion assignment. Here, I am experimenting by painting with light to capture the essence of blurred motion. The second photograph is from a depth of field assignment. This is my near dof image focusing on the use of color and composition.

Part of a series I am doing focusing on certain aspects of nature as identifying features. In a sense, I am trying to capture the personality of nature. I am also attempting to show the qualities of nature that resemble human qualities or qualities of other objects we are familiar with.

These two Images are of a series of images that we were shooting for class for our midterm. The first image is of seascape, capturing the scape of the sea, just giving the feel of the smooth water. The second image is of the cityscape, where I was trying to capture the scape of the city and placing an enormous building in front with an intense color of red and lights illuminating the billboard.

Photo taken for a depth of field project to show a blurred foreground and sharp background. I thought the reflections in the water created interesting lines and organic forms. The other photo was taken for a project to exhibit blurred motion. Used panning to blur background and keep horse in foreground somewhat sharp but also exude the motion of the horse’s body itself as it moves across the scene.

These images were the final product of our Landscape/Cityscape assignment. The main idea behind this project is to capture and/or express the essence of the city/land within a sense of the nature of the environment.
3470: Digital Photography 1
Digital Photographs; 8″ x 10″
This first photograph is from a landscape assignment. I was trying to capture the ephemeral, overwhelming feeling of natural beauty inherent in the landscape. In capturing this feeling, I focused on the sky as prime medium for highlighting and conveying this mood.
The second photograph is from a motion assignment. This is my frozen motion photograph. I was trying to pinpoint the lightness of a falling leaf in contrast to the very firm, settled structure of the house. Framed against the bright blue sky, the red fading falling leaf is an instantaneous snapshot of change.

Unfinished series…will be about 24 images
These images are exploring the Western ideas of gender roles. I am playing off advertisement adds in magazines (over sexualized and demeaning use of women), which are perfect examples of what is excepted culturally. But I am switching the gender roles. I want to see how this change affects the viewer, and if they pick up on these underlying social issues. Our society is overloaded by images everyday, but there is a lack of gender equality in these images.
Both of these images were inspired by real adds. But that is a female posing in the boxers. With the other image I was inspired by an offence add where the female was on her knees and the male was standing. I simply switched this. And want to know how the viewer responds.

“Series: M.A.S.G.” focuses on a photographic investigation of found/preexisting images from family archives. As a series, the work incorporates a combination of photographs, objects, and spaces all related to a single individual. The subject serves as an artistic ‘symbol’ of a family’s history, past and present. Through its evolution, “Series: M.A.S.G.” has become personal reflection on the influence and life of a matriarch.
