Last night was the much anticipated photo show! We had a successful outcome and turnout and a lot of fun. I'm excited for the next one!

My artist statement:
"I have always been drawn to the human figure in art for as long as I can remember. Even as a child I drew more people than any other subject. I enjoy portraits and have recently wanted to photograph children. This challenge has turned into a fascination with children and I have become more interested in the child’s back-story and their life at home. I am interested in how children are raised, who raises them, and how it affects their personalities and behaviors. I believe that the very early stages of a person’s life are crucial because it is the time when they are most influenced by their caregiver(s) rather than their peers. I am exploring how this relationship can be represented through photographs.
This photo documentation follows a dozen children from the ages of 1 to 4 in their home or in a place they call home. Interactions between caregivers and children, siblings, and friends are shown. The environments in which these children live and play are addressed as well, as these details reveal more about the subjects’ nature."
The group photos were taken at the end of the show, so they're missing Olivia, Cherish, Mariah, and Ashley.
