When I began graduate school, I had already spent a couple years actively pursuing photography as a passion and hobby. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to take graduate-level photography classes for architecture students, a new addition to the graduate electives. Although the class was titled “Architectural Photography,” it was not solely focused on architecture; we were encouraged to shoot what we enjoyed to shoot. However, concepts and strategies were consistently being tied back to architectural logic.

This project served as my final composition for the course, and is a series of eight 8×10 images. The photographs explore variations in perspective and scale from the view of the camera. What is actually a large transformation of the subject, seems subtle or not noticed at first glance. The scale figure here has brought imbalance to the image, in a sort-of playful way. As with most my projects, it was also a learning exercise to advance my skills in photo editing and processing.
