PrizeHonorable Mention in Photography
University/SchoolAcademy of Art University
Going out into nature is my only escape from real life. I capture the scenes that I have an emotional connection to. The subjects represent how I feel, they're the mirrors of my vulnerabilities. The ocean, trees, and land are the reason I'm able to refresh my mind and my heart. The places that are being visualized in this body of work express the emotional being of my inner self. My intention is to bring my feelings out to the world through these handmade pinhole cyanotype photographs. I believe feelings are somewhat unclear, undefinable, and unspeakable. You have to feel it with your heart.
