Steph Brandt's ART 552 Photo Project Proposal

Steph Brandt
Art 552
September 17th 2012


I would like to create 2 – 20 prints of life’s rawness and happenstances. Prints that make me feel or were my feelings pouring at the time. I cannot shake these current personality disorders and mental health struggles, so I will use them to the best of my ability; hopefully more therapeutically vs. damaging/destructive.  I just want to shoot and shoot and shoot until I feel a release and in return capture spectacular imagery. I want to document this era in my life that hurts so much and try and gain back my carefree, funny and outgoing self and hope to see these personalities convey in and out from image to image.

• How many finished pieces will you complete? 2 – 20

-How many images will you edit from? Over 400

-What photographic process will you employ? Digital

-What will be the dimensions of the finished work? 8 x 10 or smaller, probably 5 x 7.

-How do you plan on finishing the images? (framing) I will not be able to determine this until I see the prints.

• Who will participate in the creation of the images? Nature/Strangers/Possibly myself

• Where will the image capture take place? Outdoors

• Who are some artists that use a similar capture process? I wouldn’t know, I am completely out of the loop when it comes to a list of artists, especially ones to compare to myself. I know everything can remind someone of something, I believe this is circumstantial. Why is this important? Does it have to capture another artist, or can it just by chance?

-What are the theories and/or philosophies that influence your work? Myself, everyday struggles, how I feel, why I started to do this in the first place. Me.

-What are the historical influences on your work? I guess the history of humans? Personality disorders.

-What are the contemporary issues that influence your work? My current mental state.

• What effect will the work have on your audience? I just want them to feel something, whether it’s good or bad. Hopefully I can relate to someone who feels like I do or is going through what I am, through this imagery.

-What conceptual elements does the work convey? Landscapes/large spaces

-What response does the work elicit? (emotional, intellectual, etc…) Anxiousness, beauty, ethereal emotions, miraculous emotions, sadness, euphoria, admiration, acceptance, relevancy, natural.
