I see photography as a tool to help us deepen our understanding and to ask questions. Portfolio Showcase XII explores the constantly changing world we live in, and while each project I selected resonated with me differently, I was able to gain insight through their lens. At first glance, the selections are an eclectic mix of portfolios, but for me, it was the subject matter they explored. From life to death, beauty to decay, these artists all lead us to understand the ways in which we process the world around us. These portfolios bring us to that understanding using different approaches to their image making.
As a reflection of how our lives move through the cycles of time, these artists train their eye on how we collectively experience beauty and decay.
