For my Capstone project, I have worked in the medium of photography, specifically digital photography. My focus for this project is on the intersection/interface between me and my imagination and the world which art creates. As a photographer, I feel that I view and picture the world through the capturing of moments, the subject explored by this project. My project began with a focus on this troubled concept: I wanted each photo to feel like a “moment,” one where the image could have been a second out of everyday life, yet one that has been captured in a very polished and stylized way. As I progressed with my project, I began to think about what it would look like when this “moment” was dramatized, taking on more of an identity that looked like it came out of a fantasy rather than everyday life.
