Conceptual Photography

While words and language can paint a picture, it's really through actual imagery that I've come to understand life on a deeper level. I've always enjoyed photography and the art of capturing moments to tell a story, invoke an emotion, or simply remember something by. Conceptual photography is something I again began to learn more about while attending the art institute. Here, I was allowed think more critically and engage more fully to photography both behind and in front of the lens. All of these photos are self portraits that then turned into installations which were then again captured to take on another layer, a different interpretation, and another moment in time.
