Abstract

For as long as I can remember, the winter seasons have been the hardest time of the year for me, and 2014 has been no different. After being diagnosed with depression, it was no surprise that I would face many more struggles during the season, creating a constant battle with myself. It has effected who I am and is inspiring the development of my work. Through this quarter, I have taken the challenge of converting these emotions into my photography. Since I have dumped so much emotion into these images, my ultimate goal would be to evoke these emotions onto my viewers, if that is achieved, then I consider my purpose for this collection complete. My photographic process relates to isolating objects that people normally wouldn’t consider to be able to emit emotion or aren’t symbols with a deeper meaning. The development of this collection is not a representation of the ordinary, but rather a depiction of personal adversity.
