“Currently I am in my second semester of thesis preparing for my BFA show in December. I am using a 4×5 view camera and color film to create a series of portraits that represent the psychological space between the innocence of childhood and the often darker realities of adulthood. Each photograph is personal to the subject(s) within, and I construct these surreal scenes not to completely divulge their stories, but to create a feeling that mirrors their experiences, and to let the viewer draw their own conclusions.”
