Week 4 - Artist Statement
I feel like because I am a kid, my voice will never be heard because I don't have the right to vote. It really frustrates me that some people actually choose not to vote because they think their vote doesn't matter. My message is to encourage those who do, to speak up for the people who are denied that right.
For my final photos, I got my ideas from walking past a polling place on my way home from school. I got a couple of angles, but these were my favorite. I increased the contrast and blurred the background a bit on both of them, and made the one on the left black and white. I think the black and white makes the photo seems more serious and formal.
