Series of 10

This work is about alter egos. I feel that we all wear a mask of personality when we go out in public. Big or small, they’re often created out of defense, shyness, or just to fit in. The first photo represents their everyday public personality, and and the second represents their alter ego.

A lot of the shots I used were off guard. I talked to each person about their personalities with my finger on the trigger, pressing it at sort of random when I felt they had let their guard down.

These are two images from a group of back photos that I took for my final series. I have an interest in capturing a person in a portrait-style set up, but without photographing their face. I think capturing their back, which may reveal broad shoulders, speckled skin, tight muscles, or protruding ribs and spines is much more personal and interesting. The back is really underrated and my series attempts to shift portraiture from faces to other revealing/characteristic parts of the body.

This series was for our Everyday Still Life project. The assignment was to pull attention to something we would normally overlook in our daily lives. These are some of the chairs I found around my campus.

Series of 4

Statement: Every family who has young children can relate to the fact that houses are supposed to be a little bit messy. Children leave crumbs, messes, toys, etc. lying around all of the time. It is what makes a house a home. I babysit my two cousins each week on Fridays. We play with this dollhouse and both children ask me for the same snacks almost every Friday. This project is dedicated to Isabelle and Timothy and all of our memories. I look forward to spending more afternoons playing with this dollhouse, eating the same snacks, and making messes together.

4×6 prints of the most recent 270 photos tagged on a person’s Facebook create the backdrop to demonstrate the way physical photo albums were before the internet. Then each person was photographed in front of the photos while holding his or her current Facebook profile picture.

Since the advent of the internet and social media, our identity has become more obsessed over in our generation. I instructed each sitter to be as transparent as possible, to contrast the way we usually interact with the camera and its operator, as seen in the photos behind each person.

Sliver Prints; 8″ x 10″

These are two photos that focus on the city of Madison from unique vantage points. The first is a snapshot of the construction going on but from above instead of the usual way I see it as a pedestrian. The second is a eagle eye view of a busy intersection from the top story of a high rise apartment. I wanted the views of Madison that I capture to differ from the usual view of how I see Madison on a daily basis.

This photo was for our “Everyday Still Life” project. The problem was to take under-appreciated everyday objects and show the beauty in them. My solution is the ornate doorknob at my house. I liked taking time to observe the intricacy of this item that has become much more focused on functionality these days.

In a series of 8 images

These photos were taken for my basic portrait lighting project. For each lighting situation we had to match the mood with certain outfits and whatever else we wanted. I started the first photo in the series with just one color of paint on her face and then progressively added more colors on top until the very last picture. I decided for my split lighting photograph that I would paint over all the bright colors with just white to keep the mood.
