My Show!

Hey everybody!  So my Bachelor's of Fine Art Show went up last Thursday.  I have been working on it for the past six months and it is such a relief to be done.  It looks so good on the wall.  A lot of my friends and teachers were able to come and my family will be able to come in about two weeks!

I wanted to create work that was beautiful and educational.  I wanted to teach people how simple photography really is and I think I was able to accomplish that.  My favorite part of the show was when parents would come in and tell their kids "Look at these images!  They came from homemade camera's that you can make!  you don't need an expensive camera to make art.  We should try this."

Here is the set up, I have my own hallway on the second floor of the Spori building.  On the left are some camera's that people can pick up and look at.  I felt like that was necessary for people to grasp the concept.  Not shown is a video tutorial I made showing the process of making and taking images with a pinhole camera.

Here is me before the show!  I was so nervous.

Here is Ben before the show!  He was not nervous.

After the show!  Not nervous anymore!
