An Honest Assessment
An Honest Assessment is a series of staged self-portraits and documentation of provocative pennant banners exploring anxiety, inadequacy, anger, disappointment, and other feelings that are often discouraged from open discussion. The photographs serve as both private confessions and public declarations of living through these emotional states.
I have trouble maintaining my own psychological well-being and acknowledge the ridiculous paradox of feeling miserable when everything else in life seems to be fine. In that spirit, the elements of handmade whimsy in these photographs intentionally mock these heavier emotions. This is a light-hearted portrayal of serious concerns.
