Imitation is Flattery by Emily Wanamaker


Attached, you will find three PowerPoint presentations done by Emily Wanamaker, Class of 2015. Emily is currently in Independent Study for Photography. I compiled a list of projects for Emily to complete independently. As a photographer and artist myself, I don’t care for deadlines. Inspiration hits you when it hits you and motivation comes in waves. Emily has been working hard on this assignment for some time now, working through inspiration, studio problems, lighting, and subject matter. I think the hard-work and dedication paid off.  I absolutely love these photos! Emily stayed true to her style while being inspired by three different photographers (Edward Weston, Zeke Berman, and Hiroshi Sujimoto). Emily gives all three photographers credit for their inspiration in helping her create these magnificent images.

Whenever I am in a slump, I try to find artists, of any kind, to inspire me. With this cold weather, it has been hard for all of us to be motivated. One of my students is really intrigued by these artists. The ParkeHarrison’s work caught my interest and I was thinking maybe it would help inspire some of you. These images are from the ParkeHarrison’s website which I linked at the bottom of the page.


If there are artists that inspire you, link their websites in the comment section!
