16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Lights of Emotion

The story behind this photo is, during Senior year of high school I was going through a rough time in my life. I was tired of taking mediocre photos to present to my AP Photography class. I wanted to capture how I was feeling through another person. My best friend and I sat in her room trying to think of ways to best capture that essence. I wanted to make a statement photo that would leave people wondering how to interpret it.
