Digital Photograph; 8″ x 12″

This photo is from a still life project. We were to consider how the everyday objects and accumulations that surround us tell stories about us, about our interests, or our overlooked everyday habits.

Statement: There is an increase in anti-transgender violence in the state of Michigan, and yet not many people seem aware of this despite the number of transgender individuals and LGBT organizations speaking out about the string of attacks and murders against transgender women this August. These images were created as part of a larger series that explores how I interact with my gender when my own state is not safe for me and others marginalized identities.

ART 476: Intermediate Photography
Digital Prints; Series of 8

This semester, I am working on telling the stories of songs through photographs.These images are from a series based around the Bon Iver song “Woods.” The only lyric is “I’m up in the woods, I’m down on my mind / I’m building a sill to slow down the time.” This shoot focused on the peaceful melancholy that the singer experiences when he finds himself lost in the woods.

Digital Photograph; 8″ x 12″

This was a still life photo, which I named “Apples” The project was to capture the beauty of a daily item and fall apples are something that taste and look wonderful. I captured both beauty and mystery in the photo which appears as more than just apples.
