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.”
