The only requirement for my darkroom final was to have a cohesive set of images. My inspiration was found in the heart of my community, Waco, TX. To help people reflect on who they are, I asked my participants to write down their favorite thing about themselves. I wanted people to see themselves in a positive light and be aware of how unique, valuable, and worthwhile they truly are. At our core, regardless of age, race, background, we are all part of the same creation, and are capable of so much more than we can even imagine.
I encourage those reading to ask yourself what your favorite thing is about yourself. I hope it reminds you of how AWESOME you are and brings a smile to your face.
*A special thanks to those who were willing to participate and take time out of their day (ALL a pleasure to meet) and another special thanks to my good friend Tristen Coffee for wandering Waco with me and being my moral support.
*to be on the safe side I photographed with both digital and film, yay technology; about half of these images are film and half digital
