Moxie's Photovoice Portfolio

Week one

our assignment was to take an interesting selfie, a photo of a family member, and an object.

these were examples of the photos from week one that I took. 2 selfies, Two photos of a family member, and two photos of an object, I chose a water bottle.

Favorites from week one:

This was one of my favorite photos from the same assignment . I chose this water bottle as my object for the photo. I liked it because the sun was shot through the water bottle and enhanced the photo.
This was also one of my favorite photos because we eliminated any distracting backgrounds and played with turning down the exposure while taking the picture.
This was my object photo for a water bottle. I like this photo because its playing with perspective. I shot the photo from the top and focused on certain drops of water, while other parts are blurred.

week two

our week two assignment was to take vertical and horizontal photos, both snapshot and portrait.

these were thr photos from our week two project. 2 snapshots, and two portraits.

favorites from week two

This was one of my favorite portraits, because the lighting hit her very well, and there wasn't a distracting background. Lastly, Isabela, the person who took this photo with me helped me focus the picture so it wouldn't put a glare on her glasses.
this was my favorite snapshot because in the moment we weren't focused on the photo being taken, and although there wasn't a distracting background like a portrait, our intention was a "in the moment" picture of us laughing.

week three

Our assignment was to take two social justice based photos.

This photo is about women's rights. I found a book that had illustrations that clearly demonstrated my message. I wanted to have a blurred background where it was contrasting in colors. I did that by having the white snowy background of outside in contrast of the warm colored book.
This photo was from a march that I went to. The march was about gun violence and this women allowed me to take a photo of her. Having the other protesters in the background added to the meaning of this picture. the grey and muted tones in the background really made her poster pop.

week four

My artist's statement:

I am surrounded by unfair stories of shootings that happen to young black men in communities around me all the time. This has affected my life in as well. My sister, who lives in Chicago, has been in her home at the same time someone was shot down the block. In order to make schools and neighborhoods safe for everyone. Protests, marches, and fights need to continue. This woman is still and serious. With all the commotion around her of people marching, she is still. She doesn't have to say anything for her message to be conveyed. I want people to see this image and feel more moved to learn about the topic and do everything they can to support the fight.

week five

This is my final photo, Here I cloned the sky and copied it over some of the distracting branches in the background. I also burred the background to bring attention to the subject. This enhanced the photo by drawing one's eye to the women to more strongly show the message.

week six

final artist's statement: I am surrounded by unfair stories of shootings that happen to young black men in communities around me all the time. This has affected my life in as well. My sister, who lives in Chicago, has been in her home at the same time someone was shot down the block. In order to make schools and neighborhoods safe for everyone. Protests, marches, and fights need to continue. This woman is still and serious. With all the commotion around her of people marching, she is still.
