The House That Changed Me

Allison Driesenga's avatar Allison Driesenga

Before coming up with this conceptual photography project I read the book titled "The Ocean at the Lanes End" by Neil Gaiman. I really wanted to portray the main feeling that I felt through out the whole book. That is the feeling of being lonesome. The idea of growing up with no friends the only thing to talk to and interact with was a black cat. The feeling of growing up with heartaches and traumatic experiences all bad luck just like the feelings you get when seeing black cat. Using it as a metaphor of your friend within bringing such luck. I first got into art when I received a camera for my 17th birthday. I couldn't put it down and just loved the idea of being able to capture a moment and keeping it forever. The idea that memories can last forever just by capturing the feelings of that moment. I am now exploring the world of arts at Western Michigan University. I am currently a Junior and will be starting my second year in the Graphic Design program at the Frostic School of Arts. I am also exploring the different types of photography so that one day I will be able to capture the photos to bring my designs together.
