As promised, here are the images from my BFA final exhibit. I was really proud of the final project. The prints are huge (although they appear quite small on this blog) and beautifully framed by none other than yours truly.
Thank you so much to everyone who helped me with this project. My dear husband, Joe, my professors, my photography colleagues, a talented seamstress, a wonderful make-up artist, my co-workers at the museum, the HFAC gallery staff, and everyone who came to see the show and share their kind words. I could not have done it without any of you. Thank you all so very much!
Here's a photo Joe took of me and my grandma on opening night. Can you tell I'm the happiest girl in the world to be finished?
Daughters of Eve is a collection of photographs that seeks to honor Eve and foster respect and admiration for women everywhere.
Eve, as the first woman, represents the essence of femininity to me. She was the crowning creation of our Heavenly Father, though her role has been widely misunderstood throughout history. Eve has been accused of great pride and is generally considered the weaker of the pair. She is often represented as a temptress – a fallen creature who led to the downfall of all mankind. All of these misconceptions have contributed to the disparaging of the female sex as a whole.
By the light of the restored gospel, we are able to understand Eve’s divine role in the Father’s plan. She made a choice that set in motion the existence of mankind. She experienced the sweet and bitter in life, always seeking to know God’s will. I honor her decision, I admire her bravery, and I stand in awe of her beautiful daughters who continue on in the legacy she began.
