When I first met Amelia Morris at Photolucida last spring, I just loved her. Her images, her demeanor, the way the two blend together. And for months and months this first image haunted me. In fact, I wrote her about it just a couple of weeks ago, which made me realize this work was perfect for FOCAL POINT.
AN HONEST ASSESSMENT BY AMELIA MORRIS
An Honest Assessment is a series of public declarations and private confessions. Staged self-portraits address feelings of anxiety and inadequacy. Colorful banners disarm by conveying negative thoughts in a cheerful display. Home-made whimsy through temporary tattoos, an abundance of pears, and coordinated outfits create humorous artificial scenarios. This is a light-hearted portrayal of serious concerns.
