Statement of Style

My Artistic Statement:
I am from a small town in Missouri but am aware that a much larger world exists beyond these borders. I do not let my small town morals and opinions hinder me from searching for something better and different. Thus said, I believe that I have a great appreciation for both the simple and abstract things in life, and if forced to choose I would prefer the simple. I enjoy both color and black and white photos and I do not think that I have any sort of 'genre' to my style, it is rather random. Basically, I like all things beautiful and to sum it up that is what I strive for in all aspects of my work.

Just tried to spice this up a bit. I could see this photo angering most critiques... but I like it.

This is one of the photos used for my final project. My final project is a collage of black and white images of my family members and will be glued to a canvas. This particular picture is of my niece, Lillianne. I manipulated the color but did not make it black and white. This particular photo has more of an antique feel, rather than plain and simple black and white. I feel as if it goes well with the colors in the photo as well as the demeanor on her face.
