Cat. Annie.

I took this picture of my cat, Annie on black and white film.  I sprayed developer on the picture from a squirt bottle to get this effect.

Hotel Rooms. Photography.

I developed and printed these film photos for a photo essay about hotel rooms.  A hotel room is something every person can share no matter who you are, how much you earn, what your job is, whether you are a loyal person or your political or religious affiliation.  They are common around the world.  The rooms in my photo essay have been rented by famous rock stars like Ozzy Obourn and his family and politicians, like John Kerry during his campaign for presidency, CEOs, mothers and fathers, honeymooners and people running away from their lives.  Hotel rooms hold the silent history of their inmates.  I chose these rooms because of their interesting pasts and futures.

Little Ones. Photography.

I've been a nanny and babysitter for eight years and have worked with about ten families.  I've become extremely close with many of the little ones and their families.  I based my portfolio last year off of these pictures.  I took the pictures on black and white film, developed the film, then developed the pictures onto pieces of rice paper.  I was emulating John Lennon's Album, Plastic Ono Band, and chose to take pictures of these children because the pictures reflect the innocence of the songs on the album.  The entire process took about three months and I take great pride in this collection.  Enjoy!
