Life. Death. Happiness. Sorrow. We are all fueled by these happenings in our life. In this project I attempt to analyze my own life experiences that have brought me to this point in time. Though collectively this project contains the narrative of my own self exploration, on their own each image carries a story, remembered and forgotten, that shaped my own self realization. Each images is representative of points in my life and characterized by objects that correlate to the individuals and instances that have influenced me.

By photographing each image in a vanitas style I hope to portray the people and events through objects that represent them, a portrait uninhabited. As well as the image itself, each piece will be paired with an item of significance, something tangible, to accentuate the certainty of times past. The process of this self observance forces me to confront my own journey from which has brought me to this stage of my life. Through this exploration I discovered that it is not only the significant events like life and death that have molded my reality, but the minor ones like temporary pain and joy that left lasting impressions on my self image
