artist statement?

22 Oct

1st draft for class:

You are beautiful. You are unique. You are fascinating.

I strive to take the everyday and turn it in to something exciting. Each moment, every breath, every blink, every laugh is a moment to capture. My approach to photography is based off of capturing the small but very important and theatrical moments of life.  My photography is saturated by my roots in the theatre arts. I create images that tell stories, about you, about your history, about your future. I use my camera as a medium to retain and share the stories of others, a high school senior, a homeless woman and her dog, an airport custodian, a mother, a friend.  I see so much theater in life, I want to take it all in and I want to share it. I’m influenced by performances on stage; the imitation of life is captured so vividly, I work to do the same with my camera.  I often see life as a performance through my viewfinder. There will be comedy, romance, tragedy, and it will all be beautiful because

you are beautiful, you are unique, and you are fascinating.
