The Story of Me
Poem by Jack Myers

This project of 10 -12 images was inspired by a poem selected by each student. The poetry was published by the New Issues Poetry and Prosed here on Western’s campus. I am attempting to work with focal points which draw the eye to a particular spot on the composition. The prints were inspiration from a poem by Jack Myers. The story of me 1 print represents a one way street sign that represents the possible direction or feeling this person may have felt during his journey in life. The story of me 2 print represents a possible scenario of a death that could have possible occurred during his journey in life.

“Momo” was my first image to show what I intended to do with the series. I wanted to do double exposures. I’m taking a portrait of a person, and a picture of what that person is passionate about. I originally planned to do this ‘in camera’ with 35 mm film, as an experiment. The film did’t turn out the way I wanted. “Jeremy” is one of those ‘in camera’ images. From here, I will be taking the series into a slightly new direction. I will put the two exposures together digitally and take the portrait on a clean black background.

This series is an exploration in portraiture of the body using extreme lighting. The objective is to look at the body from a formal standpoint and redefine the shape of the body by eliminating edges and boundaries.

Series called “With Thanks,” currently there are 13 works in the series but it is ongoing

Description: Documenting and highlighting the often overlooked dedication page in books. The idea of placing the images in the book becomes somewhat of a paradox because one never moves past the dedication page to the actual text, thus the dedications become the story.

The work is part of an experimentation in motion studies, based on the historical work of Eadweard Muybridge. It studies activities that, as artists, we see quite often: wheel throwing, painting, drawing, etc., and breaks down the often either minute or large changes in movement of the body.

The Night Market (I)
Poem by Jeff Hoffman

As mentioned in the last couple posts, these pictures are to be of our own personal interpretation of a poem. In this case, the poem that was studied was titled “Night Market”, in which a couple wary travelers are making their way through a completely foreign town. There are strange and unusual things everywhere, and there’s an ominous, almost mysterious feel about the unfamiliar stalls and stand they wander up to. In this series I wanted to duplicate this feeling, as I took a walk through some of the more unseen, unfamiliar parts of town.

15-20 for final series

The series that I am currently working on focuses on capturing the human body in a way that highlights movement. In order to emphasize the detail and emotion of my subjects, I have been photographing at night with the help of a flash as the light source. I am interested in capturing the youth and dream-esque elements of sporadic movement that is made possible to the human eye through the utilization of a slow shutter speed.

The Dress Series
Digital prints
Series of 9 photographs

Over the past few years have purchased and inherited many dresses in my closet. I currently own over 50 different dresses. However, I rarely get the change to wear any of them. Therefore, I decided to photograph a series of dress that were forgotten, while addressing my obsession with collecting dresses.
