Final Project: Theme

It is always interesting to see what students choose for their theme. It is the culmination of their work for the quarter. I ask that it be something they enjoy. They have three weeks to complete it and often end up with a different idea than what they started with. They explore three or more ideas on their first roll of film before zeroing in on one. The toughest part seems to be the process of selecting and then following through with one idea rather than becoming scattered. The first student is Sherene Emegbo. Sherene explored multiple exposure. She took a photograph, advanced the film and then rewound the film just a bit to make images overlap without knowing exactly how it will turn out. It is very intuitive and random in approach. I think she was successful. The first few are from the city.

The next three are autobiographical with herself and her son.

The next images are by Clarice Bruch. Clarice explored shadows. Sometimes, you can take a simple idea like this and find images that are appropriate everywhere!

Lizzie Walker decided she loved self-portraits after project #4. So, she photographed herself in greater depth. I just picked a few to post. What makes these images seems to be the black nail polish!

Emeralde Faunson continued with self-portraiture as well. Again, she has some images that reflect the work of Francesca Woodman. In actuality, she was inspired by the visual stories of Duane Michals and for the first three had a story line to accompany the images.

I thought the next two were beautiful and ethereal as well.

Cailin Sweet photographed construction which is going on throughout the Seattle area. Many old neighborhoods are being transformed and not always for the better it seems. Here are a few of her images.

The next few images were on the theme of circles by Priscilla Hartono. I love the first circle!

The last photographs are by Julia Robertsdottir on the subject of leading lines. Once again, simplicity can be best.
