During Strange Times

I’m finding that the outside world just doesn’t interest me lately. The structures that enticed me a just a couple months ago don’t seem to have that much meaning anymore. Everything looks familiar — I’m not finding new angles or ways to photograph the same things over and over. Maybe I’m just tired. That’s probablyContinue reading “During Strange Times”

Abstract Expressionism

I think it is safe to say that today has been one of the best photography days I have ever had. Yesterday night, I shot a couple reflection shots of my Siamese fighting fish (i’m purposely trying to avoid using “betta” because it devalues the cultural heritage of a fish originally from Thailand), Mitra, andContinue reading “Abstract Expressionism”

A bit of a long reflection post.

Bit of Background So. I adopted a new betta fish yesterday, 6 days after my first fish, Mr. Pickles and his companion snail, Sir Cornelius passed away one day apart. It was a tragic death that happened a week after Clark closed down due to the coronavirus. As far as I am concerned, the stressContinue reading “A bit of a long reflection post.”

I try to capture emotions in my pictures, whether it be through my DSLR I got on my birthday last year, or through my iphone se.

Quarantine

So. I have to admit the beginning of this week has been a rollercoaster. The coronavirus has hit, and is currently edging and blindfolding society. At least for me, college has been cancelled for the rest of the semester, putting a rude halt to senior year and the two extra months I was excited toContinue reading “Quarantine”

Epiphany

Yesterday, I was having a conversation with a photographer who came to print downstairs in the photolab about her work. She was printing 3 different portraits on a silk screen: one where the subject was out of focus, one where the subject was in focus, and the last one where both the subject and theContinue reading “Epiphany”

Figure Study

Lately, I have taken to sketching marble sculptures on my ipad. It’s a conscious effort I am making to challenge myself creatively by translating these 3D sculptures into a 2D form. Its an exercise in shading the human body in a way that makes it seem 3 dimensional, and i’ve been having a blast withContinue reading “Figure Study”

Detatchment

2 months of summer are already almost over, and I’m still struggling with the fact of graduation next year and this whole feeling of mental “weightless-ness” that I’ve been feeling since coming back from Texas. These ghost photos were taken in the forest across the street from my house. Although unremarkable (I mean, come on,Continue reading “Detatchment”

Inspired by Duane Michals

So I can say that I have been struck with a lightning bolt of inspiration after yesterday’s critique from 6 – 9 and I discovered 2 photographers, Ralph Gibson (whose aesthetic I’m trying to emulate) as well as Duane Michals whose narrative collage structure I am trying to copy. I made some photographs of myContinue reading “Inspired by Duane Michals”
