Cyanotype; 8″ x 10″

This photographic series combines portraiture with individual text responses through the use of cyanotype printing. Behind each face is a series of question responses regarding how each person perceives themselves, how they believe others perceive them, and how their perceptions of their environments affect them individually. To introduce an aspect of uncertainty, I did not include the questions that were asked in the final image, in hopes that the viewer might be able to draw their own conclusions about each of the subjects.

These images are taken from a series dealing with the passage of time while waiting alone. Bus stops provide the perfect stage for this, especially at night when solitary subjects are more common. The subject is often consumed in thought or trying to escape his/her loneliness through a phone, and is forced to remain on this stage until the bus arrives and the curtain closes.

By shooting the images in “The Ages of Man: A Brief Meditation” from behind the subjects, the series attempts to portray anonymous  men through American cultural stereotypes and expectations of masculinity. The cowboy, the soldier, the media – aimed at hunters and fishermen, the bald “hair” style – all illustrate the transience, which ends in frailty.

These two images are two more in a series translating an idiom or phrase, interpreting and bringing it to life. Again, the allusion in each image is not meant to be strikingly obvious, but hopefully cause the viewer to linger a little longer and think about each photo.

This is a continuation on a project that I have posted about before. I originally had a still life in the foreground, but after experimenting, found that taking the subject out all together left a more interesting composition and concept. This project explores the idea of reduction and photographing something as simple as paper. These pieces also explore texture and color relationships.

In this series I am exploring the objectification of women. I am taking stereotypical feminine poses, which have long been viewed as inviting to the sexual pleasure of men and placing material as a barrier between the object of desire and the viewer. The viewer is then left with just the pose, which exposes the absurdity of the whole situation.

Digital Mixed Media (photography / graphic design),; 30″X 20″

Both images are part of a series of eight, that depict perceptions by myself, and others, connected to certain aspects of my life. “Pencil” is about my boyfriend Rob, who I have re-imaged in words, and state the many things, good and bad, that make up this man I have fallen in love with. “Easel” is about my passion for art. My drives, desires, and obstacles are engraved in the face of the image on the canvas. The small size doesn’t do them justice, so if you could add my facebook art page, http://www.facebook.com/tanwowify they can be seen in some greater detail along with the rest of the series.

Series of 15

These are two images from a series titled Having Been Forgotten. For this series, I have taken myself out of pictures from my childhood and placed myself into new photographs that I recently took. The idea revolves around how I do not remember my parents’ house being the way that it was when I was young, I think of it as always being how it is now. I am creating a new childhood for myself in a place that I remember.

Series: Some of the art community at Cazenovia College
Contains seven prints and is an ongoing series

I came to Cazenovia College as an older transfer student from a two year school, in 2012. I was 28 at the time and required to live on campus which was strange at first. I was quickly accepted by my peers in the art community, being a close knit group at this small college, and I wanted to photograph them in their environment as artists. This was important to me because the time as a transfer student was starting to pass quickly and I wanted something to remember this experience by.

Winter is debatably the worst season; it’s cold, dull, and almost completely uninspiring. One loses the warmth and glow of sunlight and become confined inside; usually only venturing outside as far as your car is parked to travel to another inside place to hide from winter. As an artist finding inspiration in the winter months seems almost impossible some days. This sequence is a visual representation of my struggle in coping with my clinical depression and my feelings of being lost and uninspired during the long winter months in Central New York.

I’m currently working on a series that has to do with the progression of time. By using old family photographs, I’m restricting the composition I set up for my new photos. I’m going back to these old places and retaking the image in the same “set up” as they were taken previously. I am editing the photos through the camera rather than on the computer. This photo is documentation of the final display for this project.

Statement: These images were part of a series I did exploring the interior space of an old abandoned house. I was interested in photographing the space exactly how the previous owners left it to maintain the character and atmosphere in which I discovered the home. I was intrigued by the natural light shining in from the deteriorated walls, ceilings, and floor. I would really love the chance to go back and re-explore this space.

The statement I am trying to make with these photos is about body image. My original subject is a girl the is slim so my class suggested that I add something extra. So I took pictures of a girl that is larger as a “comparison”, but I don’t really know if that is what I am going for? Here are the unedited versions.
