For this project the goal was to create a mood using still life objects, and dramatic lighting techniques.
I chose to use the theme of loss. I am grieving over the imagined life of my loved one. He passed away in a drowning ATV accident in March. Landen wanted to be a firefighter, and idolized the volunteer fire dept.
My theme for this portfolio is grief. I lost a family member almost two months ago, and I’ve been overrun with emotions I’ve never felt. The unfamiliarity with these emotions creates this constant state of anxiety for me. I not only grieve for the loss of my loved one, but for the loss of the imagined life we’d have together. This tragedy was caused by drowning after an atv accident.
I like these images because they show the disarray I feel. In this state of grief nothing seems as important. My hair is a mess, and I'm not drinking the water I’m just looking into the glass.
