'Nowhere in Particular'


I love this image because it reminds me to never shy away from my love for spontaneous last minute road trips. The picture seems simple, but it still has a lot to say. Life can get hectic sometimes and this picture reminds me to not take life so serious all the time. ​

I chose this photo because I've always loved it. I think it really shows the intensity in her eyes and the way she's looking at the camera feels really powerful to me.

Assignment 1.3

I chose this picture because it reminds me of a park near my home in South Dakota. My family and I used to go to Secca Hollow every year to experience views just like the picture above.

I chose this photo because it shows one of the greatest minds acting like a normal person. It shows that it is not good to always be serious and that it is sometimes necessary to be goofy.

assignment 1.3

I chose this photo because it sort of represents the birth of the modern era and always stuck out to me. These workers building what would become the iconic skyline of New York City, to me, represent the passing of the torch so-to-speak as American society began to shift from small rural communities to the sprawling cities we know today.

Assignment 1.3

The photo I chose is Andreas Gursky's Chicago Board of Trade II.  The reason I chose this photo is cause the colors seem chaotic in sense but then have this amazing way to seem like art.  He seems to capture beauty in chaos.  I really had a hard time deciding on photos for this assignment but this one seemed to stick out the most to me.

Assingment 1.3

This is a photo of John Terry captain of Chelsea FC, my favorite soccer team. I really like this photo because it shows Terry's excitement and energy. That's what I like about him as a player.

Assignment 1.3


This photo was taken near my hometown by a friend of mine who has his own studio. The reason that I like this photo is because it shows people how there are different types of natural beauty. Yes, it's a flat, snowy landscape, but to me, this is what home looks like.

Assignment 1.3


This photo is called "A Railroad Artifact, 30th Street" by Joel Sternfeld. It shows a portion of New York City's High Line, a stretch of elevated railroad tracks that were shut down in the 1980s. I love this photograph because is shows the urban grit of the city being infiltrated by nature. It's sort of a clash between past and present and I find that very interesting.

Assignment 1.3

I first saw this image after watching a documentary about the photography of Ansel Adams. It's titled "Monolith, The Face of Half Dome." I picked this photograph because when I think of photography, this is usually the first image that comes to mind.  I think I came to appreciate the photograph more after watching the documentary, which went into great detail about the expertise Adams had when it came to composition and the developing of the film in order to create the final result.   











Assignment 1.3

This photograph was taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt. It really speaks volumes of just how momentous the news of victory over Japan was to the people in America. To me this photograph is a perfect snapshot of spontaneity and pure joy. This and the story behind the photograph are reasons it continues to be one of my favorites.

Assignment 1.3

This photo is called "Get Showered" by Michael Theodric. I really enjoy this photo because it shows happiness and happiness is a good quality to go through life with. It also shows appreciation. I mean this in a way that these kids look underprivileged and they are appreciating the rain. I admire people that find the good in every situation.

I like this photo because it reminds me of home. I live in the Bahamas and I love to spend my free time on the beach.  This photo was taken from Harbour Island in the Bahamas. The sand is pink, the water is clear and beautiful.
