CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY is a series presenting the issues, ideas and expressions of emerging photographers at various colleges and universities. My hope is that the photography community will benefit from seeing work by young people on the cusp of their careers, and provide insight into what makes the medium so seductive, compelling and relevant to artists everywhere.
Thanks to Professor Robert Derr and the students of Ohio State University for letting us publish their images. http://art.osu.edu/areas/photo
Title: Hope in devastation
When you are involved in an accident that could have taken your life, injuries turn into a source of hope, a reminder that life isn’t over and pain is only temporary.

Title: Class, from the Barrier series
The image is from a series entitled Barrier, in which I try to show the walls we put up around ourselves when we are around other people.
Title: Face to Face
The idea behind the image being that no matter where I’ve been in life, I can still look myself in the eye and know that I matter and that I’m living my life right.
Title: Blending Out
This work reflects standing out among a similar crowd.
