The Communist Spirit by Matthias-Haker

The wide lens brings in such a vast view! I love the warmth in your photographs, with the shadows still being cooling with blues. It ha...

College is finally over--I graduated with a BFA in Art with a concentration in Photography, with two minors: Spanish and Art History. I ended my final semester with the highest semester GPA I've ever achieved...ever. (3.3!). I mean, I've been an average student before, but this was slightly above my usual. Anyways, so I did my vacation thing and I've been hired part time at both Michael's (Arts & Crafts retail) and Lifetouch Portrait Studios! My dreams are slowly becoming reality. I'm on track with my plans and I'm optimistic. I've posted the still lifes (finally) from my senior project. They progress from things I am interested in and busy myself with, to groups of supportive people in my life, to how I handle depression on my own (meds, journal, coping mechanisms). It's an object self-portrait that physically embodies some of my emotions and processes and how I have lived with my depression up until this point. Things emotionally are going well now. I'm relatively stable with my medication and weekly emotional averages, and I'm coming to terms and healing from my breakdown last fall. I am scared and excited about this new chapter of my life, and I'm working on handling my fear of the unknown.

Here is my favorite still life out of all of them:

And here is the tattoo (on my twitter) I got in December to help remind me of not only the strength that others give me, but that I have my own inner strength that is growing. No matter how bad it gets, there will always be someone to support and love me.
