About the Cover

What is your favorite genre of photography?

Documentary portraits. I love people, so I’ve always gravitated towards portraiture. I enjoy the interaction with people as I take their picture. I have two beautiful little sisters, Brady ’15 and Mattie ’17; they are my favorite people to document.

Where do you see yourself after you complete your degree at NYU?

I want to make work that is genuine and impacts people. I want my work to say something. I’m inspired by and feel passionate about feminist photography. Before I didn’t understand the need for feminism, but, as I’ve gotten older, I see how women are oppressed in many ways. I also hope to collaborate with other artists because I see the future trending towards mixed media.

How did the MFS arts program influence you?

I love the entire Art Department, but Michael Webster’s photography class introduced me to studying photography and learning about other artists. That was a big influence for me and really elevated my love for photography.
