Romanticized is a series of digital photo manipulations from my undergrad senior show and are part of my complete senior thesis project, Reality. Women are often romanticized or viewed as 1-dimensional people in books, movies, tv, and in real life. Beyond this ideal is a real human being. I chose my models based on whoever I ran into and knew in one day. Style or body shape did not matter. What mattered was that the models consented to be a part of my series and that I took their photo at the moment in time I saw them. Listen to "Avalanche" by HANA when viewing this series. Models (top to bottom) are Andrea Torres, Leslie Medrano, Sam Gray, Sam Rawls, and Liz Perez.
