  2. 2. The Cyclopes<br />Statement:<br />In this series of photographs, I have created an alternate realm of reality where Cyclopes roam the Earth, often living in isolation. Unlike the strong masons depicted in mythological tales, these Cyclopes are frail, melancholy beings dealing with the unfair society which has left them secluded. The Cyclopes reveal uniqueness and unison, though they are isolated in their personal world, they truly are not alone in that they are not the only one of their kind outside of their personal realm; they are isolated yet not alone. <br /> The Cyclopes represent the people all around us who experience being an outcast, feeling isolated and alone. It is symbolic of depression, which is stigmatized in our society, often leaving the person who is depressed feeling more hopeless and despaired. There is hope however, and people who deal with depression are not truly alone. Though they feel like they are completely lonely, there are people out there who share their emotion. We may feel isolated, but we are not alone. <br />

  13. 13. Multiple Personalities<br />Statement:<br />The images I’ve worked on for this series consist of me transforming into an assortment of characters. I’ve donned on diverse outfits and accessories, as well as applied make-up, to change myself into the characters I have chosen to portray. Some of the characters involve intense transformation, while others are subtle changes. I have attempted to capture the presence each individual would have through still images. <br /> This series is product of my love of make believe and photography. I wanted to be different people and to act how they may have acted to capture that presence they would have carried. It comes from a part of me which may have never grown-up and carries the things I’ve loved throughout my life. From innocent characters such as clowns and mimes, to darker and more horror-based characters like a zombie or Frankenstein’s monster. In a way I am all these characters and all these characters live in me. They are a part of me and a part of who I am, otherwise I could not portray them so clearly. <br /> Many of the characters were thought up through the standard, even stereotypical, images with which they are portrayed. For example, for the Flapper girl, I chose to wear beads and a feathered headband, as most flappers wore, and the make-up is of the extreme kind they would have worn in that time. Another example would be the Old Lady character, with which I have chosen to portray with thick prescribed glasses, various deep-set wrinkles, and a headscarf to keep her hair in place.<br /> I used the Holga camera to add a certain allure to the photographs. I wanted it to feel vintage, classic, and very raw, and to move away from the contemporary photography visuals of the crisp, clear, and flawless digital images we see now. <br />
