This photograph is a portion of a 7-foot-long hand scroll, in which I photograph an American barn house and edit it into an architectural space with cavalier perspective, a perspective system often used in Chinese/Japanese hand scroll painting.

In this series, I sought to converge my photography with graphic design. I am interested in how the audience views these images in a hierarchical sense with the use of graphic elements, as well as how they may engage or respond to the subject.

Inspired by editorial magazine layouts, modern lifestyle publications and the fashion industry, I strive to create a visual experience that is captivating and compelling, where all elements are strategically placed with purpose. “

These images are a part of a continuing body of work that tells the stories of songs through photographs. The images in this series are based loosely on “Blame it on the Tetons” by Modest Mouse. This shoot focused less on the lyrics of the song and more on the beauty of the place, with the character finding a map and following it across the valley until she finds her treasure.

This is a video was created for an animation class at our local college (Kellogg Community College). Battle Creek has a colorful and interesting history. Our city attracted many different people due to it’s openness and tolerance for non -conformist . Battle Creek has been known as The Advent Town, Queen City, Health City, Army City, International City and Cereal City. Our history includes many great pioneers such asSojourner Truth, Erastus Hussey, Ellen and Elder James White, Dr. John D. Kellogg and C.W.Post.

Now during most hours our city streets and parks seem quite empty. At times it seems quite lonely. Our history seems to echo sounds through its structures . The city street scenes were shot during what would be considered high traffic times.

This series of photographs emphasizes maternal responsibilities and the new chaos it brings to my identity. They are taken with an iPhone in order to capture the immediacy of everyday life. This is a response to societies unrealistic view of the picture perfect image of Motherhood.

Images are from a semester long (and still ongoing) series called “Two years and counting” where I pair photos that have to do with the past 2+ years along with writings about specific events that have deeply effected me in this time.

Most, if not all, of the subjects touched upon in the series are things that I never truly got to analyze in depth or talk about to anyone where I truly felt listened to. The purpose of this series is for personal catharsis, to be able to communicate what I have been unable to through these past years.

These images along with the writings will be put into book form, and take on a journal-esque aesthetic due to it’s extremely personal content.

The images show recreations of actual events, representations of daily life, emotions, and struggles I go through; as well as putting across ideas of how I think about myself.

In this series, I sought to converge my photography with graphic design. After editing the photo in photoshop, I use Adobe Illustrator to manipulate how a viewer’s eye may see the subject. I am interested in how the audience views these images in a hierarchical sense with the use of graphic elements, as well as how they may engage or respond to the subject. My background in ballet, as well as my collaboration with a dancer on campus allowed me to create and develop the aesthetic and concept for this piece.

Inspired by editorial magazine layouts, modern lifestyle publications and the fashion industry, I strive to create a visual experience that is captivating and compelling, where all elements are strategically placed with purpose. “

This series of photos were taken loosely based on the book “Devil in The White City”, there is a serial killer in the book, so in these photos I wanted to portray what could cause someone to become a serial killer or get the thoughts of being one, and I went with loneliness.

Based off the book Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, my goal is to photograph pictures that represent the eerie and ominous nature of the book. Also to take pictures that invoke the question why, and a desire for the reasoning beyond the photo. In the book Rebecca a lot of information is withheld from the reader and I aimed to do the same with this series of photos.

These photographs are inspired by the book, “Looking for Alaska,” by John Green. I wanted to capture one of the main characters using words that described her through the book. The five words I based my photos off were: tragedy, loss, maze, obstacle, mysterious.

These two photos are inspired by the book “Bridge to Terabithia” by Katherine Paterson. The photos are intended to take your eyes on an imaginary adventure by splitting the image in half. One side of the photo is reality and the other side fantasy.

In my photographs, I am inspired by the novel “The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon” by Stephen King. I strive to capture the hope and fear that one encounters when they are lost. In the book, the main character is literally lost in the woods, but she is also lost emotionally. Dealing with family matters and other factors has her second guessing what she has always known to do. I am currently working on images to capture the contrast of fear and hope in these “lost” situations.

As I have worked on this series, I have decided to go along a different route. I was inspired by the lack of sound, or presence of sound that the character in my book experiences while alone, and lost in the woods. As you look at the images, my hope is that the image looks as though there is visual sound.
