For about the past two years I’ve been experimenting with photography in the exploration of perception and observation through a lens viewing the world I am surrounded by on a daily basis. Keeping in context that the “everyday things” I happen to come across on a daily basis are in fact beautiful, and hold a certain amount of charm in their simplicity.
There isn’t a common theme or subject within each photo that links them all together, rather the context of most of my photo’s is what threads them all together. I tend to focus on the objects themselves and the world that wraps them or holds them. Therefore this “scene” or “setting” each object is a part of or placed in projects its own agenda onto each object, giving the audience a certain skewed or altered perception of said object. It’s an exploration of space, in correlation to the closeness and intimacy between the object and camera.
My name is Hannah Jonas and I'm currently studying fine arts at UW Waukesha, soon to be UW Milwaukee and I'm working towards a major in Cultural Geography with a minor in Sculpture. Here are a few of the little things I enjoy to look at, laugh at, and philosophies I strive to live by.
I present to you all the big, little, and misshapen mishaps and idiosyncrasies of my brain.
