Inkjet Prints on 52 Playing Cards

For this project I chose to focus on the mathematical concept of probability. The idea of risk and reward is often thought of in high stakes terms where the outcome can sometimes be dangerous but the truth is every day we come in contact with probability in some of the smallest ways. I took pictures of my subject while she played an innocent game of chance and even though the risk was small the emotions that she portrayed during that time encompassed a wide range of emotions. The risk we take can cause us to be pensive, nervous, ecstatic, or regretful along with many more emotions. I worked on capturing all of the emotions she experienced while playing a game of chance.

Cyanotype; 8″ x 10″

This photographic series combines portraiture with individual text responses through the use of cyanotype printing. Behind each face is a series of question responses regarding how each person perceives themselves, how they believe others perceive them, and how their perceptions of their environments affect them individually. To introduce an aspect of uncertainty, I did not include the questions that were asked in the final image, in hopes that the viewer might be able to draw their own conclusions about each of the subjects.
