I'm Whitney. 23. Originally from Westfield, IN. Small town country girl at heart, but absolutely never going back there again.
Vis Com major, t-com and art history minor.
I changed my major between sophomore and junior year, hence why i'm a super senior. I'm glad I am in a major I love, but I am more than ready to start the next chapter of my life outside of college, even though I have absolutely NO idea what I'm doing. Not even a little bit. Hakuna Matata.
I have always been interested in photography. I took a photo class in high school and let's be honest, I didn't appreciate it. It wasn't until Photo 1 last semester that I realized how much I would learn to love it. I fell in love with photography almost instantly. It can be anything you want it to be and that is what is so interesting about it. It tells stories that are completely up to interpretation by the viewer. I sometimes get lost in what I am doing when I have a camera in my hand. There is something therapeutic about it, if that makes sense to anyone else?
In almost every photograph I see I find myself wondering who the photographer was. Who was there to actually see that, witness that, experience that, capture that? Below are a few photographs that have always left me wondering who was behind the camera. (Even though in some cases I know who the photographer was, I still marvel at what it must have been like to be the one making history with a photograph.) I am also interested in photography that shows how society changes and is changing. Photography makes the idea of "time" a visible and tangible thing to comprehend.
