  12. 12. AnnaLas fotos transmiten mi forma de ver la vida, lo querepresenta la música para mi, la importancia que ledoy a la felicidad, esas pequeñas cosas que no todospueden ver y a mi me encanta descubrir a diario.Todas las fotos son simbólicas, la guitarra representala música; el cielo es la luz que me alumbra cada día yme ayuda a ser mejor persona; el mar, es laambigüedad que me representa, la calma y latormenta por momentos.
  13. 13. DanielleThe balloons represent stressful problems... the only two ways of dealing withthem are letting them go or letting them explode. In my case, letting them go isthe better, less stressful choice. Following this photo, is another self portrait[that] shows my carefree side, which comes up again later. The next photo, ofthe moon is one that represents how I am ever-changing, and have manydifferent sides. The photograph of the balloon flying away is a lot like my firstimage, with the balloon representing letting go [and being] carefree. My nextphoto is of a water bowl sitting out on the steps in the rain. I think this one issymbolic in the way that it represents the sense being left, or alone which isone of my greatest fears. The next photo is of a sunset where we go campingevery year as a family tradition. The ocean...makes me feel so small, yet it canalso be very refreshing, relaxing, and make me feel whole-two very differentfeelings. My last photo is of my favorite suitcase left out on our porch.Whenever I see it, I think of isolation, once again, something I fear. I think thatalthough many people from my country may not attest this, I feel that many ofus are surrounded by people but we feel very alone, and do not admit to itbecause of the fear that it is true.
