C'est la vie

My photojournalism classmates and I were given an exercise to document our own life for a week. When I heard this assignment, I was initially disappointed. A classmate had already documented my life for an exercise, so I began to consider things only I could photograph about myself. After some thought, I decided to focus on a characteristic about myself that no one would normally consider photographing: awkward. My objective was to create images that made the viewer feel slightly uncomfortable by focusing his/her attention to specific details that are overlooked, composing frames in an usual manner or including quirky subject matter from my everyday life.
