Thesis Artist Statement

I’m going to illustrate an aspect of my life that is hard to put into words. There is a meaning behind what I see that only now am I beginning to understand. It involves my fears, faith, and beliefs – and my questioning behind all these things. I think that a big aspect of this goes back to my unique view of death, and as I’ve been figuring out lately, my fear of death.

In this project, I’m trying to find the connection between my new realization and my lifetime’s worth of experiences. Is there a connection? Why does this all happen? I’m trying to make sense of all of the chaos in my head. It’s not all pretty, it’s not meant to make sense, to most of you it will be confusing, and maybe you’ll deem me crazy. For me, I’m creating this as a journal of sorts, to categorize and make some sense to all of these questions.

Thesis Thesis and more Thesis

Here are some of the initial shots from my thesis. While I do like these images I'm sharing, I'm not sure if I'm going to continue in this direction with it. I want to keep the same artist statement (which I will be posting shortly) but from a different photographic approach.

For a stereotype assignment I wanted to focus on how society tells woman they are 'supposed' to look. I took portraits of some of my friends with absolutely no makeup on and placed them next to images of themselves all dolled up. I was surprised by what a difference it made, but I think it goes to show my point of how we are all used to seeing each other nowadays

I've been doing a lot of work in this space and I'm completely in love with this abandoned warehouse. I shot a panorama of it just for fun, but I'll be posting all the work I've been doing here soon.

This is an image I took for the narrative assignment I just posted. My teacher had me omit it for the sake of the narrative, but I still like it, so here it is.


My latest assignment was a narrative series. Instead of verbally describing the images, I'll let the story speak for itself.

Portrait of my classmate, Jamie.
Shot with my Nikon D600 that I got last week. I love the detail that this camera is able to capture
