If you are either Catherine Opie, Cindy Sherman, or Sally Mann… will you please hire me as your intern!! Haha, a young mother can dream, right? I began this blog while attending Agnes Scott College in Decatur, GA as a senior. I recently graduated with an art history degree (at age 28), but gained an incredible interest for the photographic medium via a photography project I created for an art history course (documentation and final paper are within this blog under categories: The history of Photography Through Lennon Project). I decided to continue this blog in order to document my exploration with photography, while also being able to see my growth and evolution through the photographs I create. In other words, this blog doesn’t have an exact focus yet! I hope that will become more apparent the further I get into exploring photography. I am a mother of two young children and I have just begun dreaming about photography day in and day out since this past January. I plan to attend Georgia State to continue my education in studio art and eventually, I hope to make a career out of photography after I pursue a masters in the medium. If you like my work or know of a photographer around the Atlanta area in need of an assistant, please feel free to let me know (in a dream world I would love to work for a studio-art photographer… or one that is an artist and explores their life and thought through photography… not sure I really want to be a wedding photographer… the monotony might drive me insane… but I guess most working artists have to have a real job too… don’t get me wrong though, I truly appreciate and respect great wedding photographers… I’m just not sure I want to get stuck there. But I love people watching!) ;). I would, however, be extremely interested in photographing concerts and musicians and creating album covers, etc. But that would probably be a far off dream also… if you feel like blessing me with tips on how to go about being that type of current photographer, let me know. I need support and all the advice, tips anyone is willing to throw my way. I am a HUGE music fanatic… and that would pay the bills plus be a way to express my art and arty self. Anywho, I am currently unemployed, yet I am spending my time expanding upon my passion for photography. My heros are CATHERINE OPIE!, SALLY MANN, MAN RAY, CINDY SHERMAN AND JULIA MARGARET.
P.S. I am also a poet, a painter, a thinker, a drawer and an artist… self-taught pretty much except for one oil painting class and one studio art course at Agnes Scott… it appears I have a lot of catching up to do if I want to even think about applying to grad school… but a young mother can dream, right? I also enjoy reading blogs… it has become a new love of mine… it might phase out… but it helps me see the other artistic/photographic worlds out there.
