Senior Project

This isn't the order that they are up in the gallery, but you get the general idea. Installing a gallery is a ton of work, but it is so amazing to see your work lighted so well! :)

Environmental Portraits

Environmental portraits are much more than merely showing the surrounding of a person. What is their favorite color? How do they spend most of their time? So many questions can be answered by an environmental portrait. These images are taken in the person’s bedroom, house, or studio. These are the places where they spend most of their time, and therefore an honest description of who they are. I talked with my friends as I took their portrait; I was able to get to know them a little better, whether that was learning about their family, their sleep schedule, or what they had for breakfast that morning. These portraits are documents of their lives.
