A shot from last March.
I used this image for the cover of a book I designed last march.
Nectar Magazine has gotten more submissions for “Most of Us Die” so far than we got in total for “Evidence of Home”. This issue is going to be big. Submissions are open until June.
On a personal note, this semester has been really intense. I’ve got 3 part time jobs, a volunteer job, and starting this magazine. On top of that, being a full time student and trying to work on my thesis. It’s tiring but when I accomplish a lot, it is very satisfying. I’m excited to graduate and be able to relax without feeling guilty.
These are some images for my final project in my Advanced Digital class. I photographed in abandoned locations in Santa Fe and then photographed my models separately and brought them together and tried to create a sense of connection between the figure and the space. I believe that structures are most affected by the people that live in them, and the time without those people. The evidence of their presence is still contained in the space, from the large amount of shoes still littering the floors to the walls smeared with dirt, possibly done by hand. The figures allude to their time and connection within the “home”, and how the figure invigorates a building even after years of neglect and decay.
Books found in an abandoned house.
This image began what would become my prison work. I decided it did not fit the project, but I can’t get it out of my head. This was taken at the Scottish Rite Temple in Santa Fe.
