My professional goal for Object Stories is to create a comprehensive body of work that suggests a multi-faceted portraiture of the contemporary Minnesota landscape. I want to laud humble objects and the people associated with them as a visual narrative that suggests the depth of attitudes and impacts we make on the land. I want to secure a solo show of this body of work as a way to expose my perspective to a larger audience and gain regional recognition as well as build my portfolio as an advancement tool for more opportunities. Personally, I hope to train a lens on objects within the landscape that we take for granted by suggesting that for some people, these objects hold a great deal of meaning. By visually interpreting these objects, my goal is to create a platform for greater understanding and appreciation of the value of objects that often times go unnoticed.
