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...

I went on a dA hiatus for a while due to emotional issues I started to experience with my life. The tattoo portrait series came to a screeching halt and my grades started to suffer. Since a senior project was needed to graduate, I needed to think of something fast. I decided to move into self-portraiture to not only explore the extent of my skills in portraiture but also to work through my problems as a form of art therapy. As I got deeper into the series, I decided to mix in still lifes of objects with personal meaning and collective themes (to be posted soon). Nearing the end of my college career, this represents the culmination of skills I have learned in the past four years as well as the mental progress I have made with my depression and coping mechanisms. Below are some highlights, enjoy!

I love photography and it is my Concentration at Longwood University, as well as minoring in Spanish and in Art History. I hope to turn art into a profession after I graduate. I also work (and was originally trained) in trad media, but haven't had much of a chance lately.

Current Residence: Virginia, USA
Favourite genre of music: almost all, but my favorites vary from Chopin, to Queen and Pink Floyd, to earlier songs from the jazz age to the 50's onward (semi-excluding 80's), as well as My Chemical Romance, The Used, discovering Stars in Stereo, to some of the top hits in hip hop/pop whatever, as well as soundtrack like Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, Thomas Newman, and some Broadway. My tastes are ever-expanding and open to anything.
Favourite photographer: Justice Howard
Operating System: Mac OSX Snow Leopard
MP3 player of choice: iPod classic
