This past year has been difficult. I’ve been dealing with depression and anxiety and other mental issues - I’m sure it’s been apparent in my lack of posting. When things were really difficult, I was very, very close to dropping out of school, but having the vision of this project was one of the only things that kept me in.
I did this series for a black and white film class. Everything was shot on either 4x5 black and white film, and was printed on 16x20 (20x24 mats) in the darkroom. Excuse the quality of a few of the pictures; because the print itself was altered I couldn’t just scan the negative, so I had to take a picture of the print, so the quality is off. Also, window mats are kind of difficult to translate digitally, haha, so bear with me.
