week 4: artist statement and revision
after pairing up we discussed how we can get our message across through more effectively. So I decided to reshoot using a different angle and background
week 5: final revision
This piece is inspired by the photo "Accused Blowtorch Padlock", by artist Pat Ward Williams. I edited my photo in Photoshop and added the text "share our similarities, celebrate our differences." I chose this quote because this is what diversity means; being able to know that just because we are different, it doesn't mean we can't be valued the same way. Our differences that set us apart should not divide us. I highlighted the words "similarities", "differences", and "share" because I wanted them to stand out as the most important. This topic is important to me because one of the reasons I like the city of Evanston is because of its diversity. There is a mix of different races, cultures, and traditions here and that is what makes Evanston stand out.
