Statement: The assignment was to create an everyday still life that either told a story about who you are and your interests and your overlooked everyday habits, or show how specific objects function in our daily lives. I was having a hard time coming up with an idea for the photograph, and then one night I was studying and saw how everything reflected opposite in the cup of water I had sitting on my desk. I decided that I wanted to capture this phenomenon so I went to the dollar store and bought some vases and a red poster board and photographed them. It was all about getting the camera in the perfect spot to capture this photograph.

“For this collection, I wanted to give my work a bit of a dated feel, reflecting on the photography of the midcentury, 1970s and 1990s. I was really inspired by the photography that I came across on Pinterest over and over again that was inspired or taken with analog film. While none of my photos, at least in this collection, were taken with film, I tried to reflect this style as best as I could through paying close attention to the coloring, lighting, blur and grain of the photos, also adding a couple scratches here or there.”

Statement: The assignment was a series of landscape inspired photographs, so instead of sticking to one location I decided to take pictures along my bike ride. The collage-style of the collected images were inspired by the photographer David Hockney. My process involved taking pictures with my camera at different angles and focusing on specific areas of the landscape, then digitally ‘stitching’ the images together, resulting in what you are seeing.
