Find Meaning While You're Here
17 images Created 26 Jul 2013
As a young art photography student at Syracuse University, I discovered a personal passion for photographing staged portraits of my friends and family — often coaching them into pensive expressions leaving an ominous feeling of absence. Inspired by the likes of Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Jeff Wall, Larry Sultan, Doug DuBios, and Cindy Sherman I found myself aiming to create images possessing a quiet, detached mood with a subtle tension towards despair. This photo series embraces those themes and attempts to expand on them.
