The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

These photos are from my final project for Digital Photo 1 where we used research from a fiction book to inspire our photos. I chose Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, which deals with depression throughout high school among other things. The drawings over the faces represent how detached you can be when in a depression even though you may be surrounded by love. The legs dangling show how you can be around friends and family and not know who is really suffering depression.

Barbie has often been used as a model for the “perfect woman”. In this series, I use the symbolism of Barbie to show that, just like us, no one is perfect – including Barbie. Even though we may seem perfect and that we have it all together on the outside, what’s going on in the inside might be a completely different story.

Time Keeper by Mitch Albom

For the final project, we selected a work of fiction. From this, we visualized our experience with the book for a series of 20 photographs. After reading the Time Keeper I started to see Father Time as a person. If he is a man would he have a family and who would they be? The images above are part of a series that show what a year in the Time Family (Father Time, Mother Nature, and Baby New Year) would look like.

Charlie in the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

For the final project, we selected a work of fiction. From this, we visualized our experience with the book for a series of 20 photographs. In Charlie in the Chocolate Factory the characters have been related to the 7 deadly sins, Charlie(lust) Veruca(greed) Agustus(glutony) Violet(pride) Mike TV(sloth) Grandpa Joe(envy) and Willy Wonka(wrath). In this photo series I tried to capture the 7 deadly sins by the representing the characters with the candy that they are related to in the book. These two images represent Pride for Violet who chewed gum, and Greed for Veruca who was a bad egg.

White Girl Problems: Babe Walker

For the final project, we selected a work of fiction. From this, we visualized our experience with the book for a series of 20 photographs. These images are from a series conveying various “White Girl Problems.” They are in a square format to imitate an Instagram photo and accentuate the materialistic problems of the privileged “white girl.” This series is meant to be satirical, giving a sense that these problems aren’t real problems.

These photos belong to a series in which I have documented drag queens in performances and in real life. The aim is to challenge the typical gender binaries of male and female and to better understand how we express ourselves as individuals. The photos that will follow these are of the expressions and reactions people give to these drag queens out of confusion, judgement, or ignorance in our everyday settings.

This series is about the relationship between nature and civilization. I am trying to convey that one side cannot thrive without some kind of negative to the other. I want to show this relationship in a raw subtle way that draws the viewer to contemplate the photos and meanings behind them.
