Photo Essay

Multiple Imagery (The Society Series)

Economic Depression (The Society Series)

The merging of images is aiding me in documenting current events in an artistic way. Looking at my previous photographs, way before the Society Series, I felt my photographs were somewhat mundane. They lacked substance. They did not speak to me even though I was the one capturing the images. As I work harder on this series, I find it gratifying, sometimes depressing, and stressful. In the fact, that I felt something strong as I created each individual one. I understand now what is meant when someone says we are all connected.
