  1. These photos have much more cohesiveness to them. All except the other photoshopped photo seems to revolve around protesting and unity. I love the contrast in these photos because it brings forth a harsh, important mood.

  2. I like how most of these photos are intentionally underexposed. I feel as if it shows how the author’s views of these people or groups are not exposed highly enough in society. Even when the photos are shown in the correct light they are double exposed or hidden in an enclosed environment. I think it shows a good deal of cultural awareness that the author display very well using multiple types of techniques.

  3. Really interested in the first shot you’ve got here. Love the way the light is cutting vertically throughout the image and how that light is resting on your subject. Great work!

  4. These images made me want to see “more” of the scene and I admire how differently your subjects are portrayed within this set of photos; each subject seems to be in deep thought due to different stimuli and it makes you wonder what those stimuli are outside of the frame. In contrast to one of the comments above, I believe more exposure in the protesting images would have given much more depth and visual appeal to the images; they seem almost muddy and adding contrast could really increase the quality of those images.

  5. Compositionally I’m also particularly drawn to the first image and the way in which the light source divides the image and frames your subject so neatly.

  6. You have an awesome style of shooting/printing. Like someone said above, the underexposure adds to the theme with a sort of morose, thought-provoking vibe.

  7. I love the first picture because you can not tell if he is opening the curtains of a window or going to walk through to the other side. I like how you only see him and everything around him is all black.

  8. The first photo really grabs my attention because of the heavy contrast and dark tones. The light shows enough but not everything so the story is incomplete

  9. I really focused on the pictures that deal with a few of the worlds current social issues. Looking at the pictures, it’s almost relatable to looking in a picture magazine/book that talks about societal issues and its intriguing because you want to know more information about where the people are going, the scenery (in color) and everything about the surroundings.

  10. To me, I am especially interested in combining your “splash” technique photos with your protest photos. The ” splashing” eyes and girl portrait photos gives me a perfect feeling of people’s inner thoughts and how they changed. With the motion you captured in your protest photos, those photos show the internal and external process of people’s mind. Very interesting. Idk whether is this the way you are originally interested in. But just an idea for you

  11. I think there is something very nostalgic about your photos. The black and white helps conduct this feeling, but it is the way you are taking the photographs.The composition, the clarity, the angle, the strength in contrast. It feels like you are unveiling something that has been hidden for too long.

  12. I love your use of light in the first picture. It gives the perfect amount of information in the picture; the negative space only adds to the picture and does not take away from it. I also think it is interesting that you have decided to stray away from the eye in your picture. Normally, when it comes to portrait photography, the eye is the main focus, but here it’s does not take away from the pictures strength that the has.

  13. I really love the contrast in the first photo. It leaves a lot up to the imagination and the balance between the white and black is super crisp. As a whole, I think all the photos work together very well and I enjoyed finding the message behind all of them.
