While everyone was taking photos of the same landscapes, I went with a different approach with my photography; fixing the perspectives of my photography using photoshop to change the look completely. That’s when I changed gears, going from black and white landscapes to a surrealistic, dream-like photograph. Recently, I have been interested in expanding my photography skills, trying out alternative photo processes to find new ways of twisting my art to my liking. One of the styles I’ve been practicing are combination prints, using multiple images in the darkroom to make one image. Another way I do this is a style called “picture weaving.” Using this process, I combine images by printing two separate images, cutting them into strips, and weaving them into one. “Intertwine” is a series of photographs that describe my anxious and paranoid feelings as I move on in the world. Creating new images that balance between the contrasting emotions I feel. Making art like this really changes my perspective on photography because it makes me feel more in control of my work. I love to do photography like this because this process gives me the chance to create art that no one would see anywhere else. However, I also like to work on any medium that I find interesting, because I believe that the most successful artist is the artist that can do anything.
