Series of photos for my senior show.
Total number of images in series is TBD.

Presenting a series of images in which I explore the multiple ways you can murder someone, and how forensic photography captures evidence of crime. Almost a “dream like” series in which I kill my husband many different, varying ways and times.

These grids are part of a series of environmental photographs and portraits that examine the people and places that inhabit family albums. This series of work is a fabrication of the rural and class-specific social structure and history that is apparent in the vernacular images that have inspired it.

I am interested in combining sculpture and photography. My current project involves the concept of stars; the various shapes, uses, symbols, ect. I constructed a 6 point star from metal and plexi-glass. There are 24 sides with a variety of digital star related images that were printed as color transparencies, and six bulbs within that illuminate the star. These are just two of the pictures that are on the star.In the future I am going to continue with this project and create other star forms, with more star images that are related to the specific type of star.

I work with emotions and trying to analyze people. Masks and mirrors help me to bring to question what it is about humanity that we try to hide from one another. These images are from a series where I play with illusion and see how far I can push an image to allude to people hiding behind masks we make for ourselves.

In this series I wanted to explore the idea of the Applachian Region a little farther than the usual images of Mountains, streams, and fall foliage. These images show whats really in the Applachian Region, the people, their houses,and there way of life. I wanted the viewer to really appreciate and embrace this culture as I do.

These two pieces are from a series concerning Landscape as Metaphor. I chose to photograph locations that only appear to be “pretty” but are places that have been taken over by coal companies and actually dangerous and unsafe.

“How does one feel in the moment of realization that they are spending their last few moments on earth? Is this feeling heightened or more extreme when faced with the knowledge that you created this moment yourself? Immortality was created to showcase that particular moment of one’s life – their last. When dealing with artists, musicians, authors and actors it often times brings about a legendary status that the individual did not possess before their dramatic ending. What exactly were these “celebrities” feeling before their pretentious demise? Why has the media given these lost souls a celebrated position in history? Would Sylvia Plath, Kurt Cobain, or Vincent Van Gosh still be as controversial today had it not been for their “unordinary” death?”

My photographs visualize the spaces I feel exist between reality and the surreal. Identity and familiarity are comforts that can escape us in the realm of dreams. For me, lucid pieces of a sometimes dark space gives a peculiar view that leaves us asking more questions about what we have seen. Personal space can be more that the places that we physically inhabit. It is even more personal to inhabit the spaces that exist in the mind. I believe that he expression and phenomena that exist there is the most individual perspective available. I have made photographs that instill a sense of the unknown and create a stark expression of these spaces.
