With this work, I want the viewer to remember events from there childhood that are similar to the ones in the images. When I stated the series I was thinking about my niece and nephews. Even though times have changed, their generation and mine have one thing in common. They still look at mom and dad as role models. Children have always wanted to have things like Mom and Dad. Personaly my niece loves doing what I do. She wants to be an artist. This is where the idea was born from.

For this assignment, I chose to document isolated buildings in the Washington Park neighborhood of Chicago, IL. On these blocks, tormented with demolition and the ever-impending possibility of gentrification, the buildings still standing are a testimonial the character of their inhabitants.

I wanted to capture the essence of dance without depicting a typical staged scenario. Therefore, I went back to the basics. To dance is to complete a series of rhythmic and patterned bodily movements usually performed to music. The connection between movement and music is counting the beats. In my photos, I used found numbers to illustrate the act of counting out beats. Usually, the dancing and music is counted in series of four or eight, which is why I chose to show one through eight. Besides the rhythm, dance is very much movement based. There is a certain connection between a dancer’s body and the surroundings. To show this, I pictured the floor, a dancer’s feet, a dancer’s hair in a bun, and stage lights. A dancer is connected to the floor through her feet, and the movement and feeling continues through her body, beyond her head, and into the atmosphere.

This assignment was “Every day still life”. This image is of my film cameras located in my printing studio. I included the Lava Light to add something else from the time period, plus I like the red glow the light gave to the rest of the image. I rescued the large format camera and the medium format cameras from the dumpster, I cleaned them up and I use them today.

For this assignment we were ask to create a social statement about an issue that we care deeply about. I chose to address the issue of performance enhancing drugs in baseball. The photo shows a baseball being injected with a syringe alongside a spilled capsule of pills. The black background represents the “shady” side of the game.

For this series, the idea was to construct a scene to photograph a series from. In my case, the theme was “Children’s games with Alternate Endings.” I’ve always had an interest and representing similar subjects in real life, as they are usually just a chant or a game with no physical representation. It’s always interesting to take the imaginary and bring it to life.

I have been working on a series of reinterpretations of art historical masterpieces. This one came after a lot of planning and thought, and is quite probably my favourite of the series. Each image uses the form of the masterpiece it is referring to, but does so in a manner that reflects everyday life, or uses everyday objects to recreate the piece, making them more relatable to viewers.

Opposed to musicians in their performance habitat, they have to practice in order to improve their overall technique. To learn from experienced instructors adds an intimate lesson reflecting on the lessons of the student’s predecessor. In situations alone or with a teacher, a practicing musician lets emotions run rampant and ideas take flight. I had the pleasure to see this with some of the musicians that I know personally.

This series included twelve portraits of twelve different people. I used dramatic lighting to capture raw emotion from my subjects as I asked them each personal questions to trigger such emotions. I wanted to see how they would react and respond to the camera without me giving them any direction.
