From Scratch is a project that is meant to instill mental clarity. I focused primarily on the white tones in each photograph to foster a sense of calmness. The high key imagery is intended to enable the viewer to harness the positive energy through the pallid palette. The purpose of white is to promote feelings of fresh beginnings and renewal, assist in cleansing, to clear obstacles and clutter, and encourage the purification of thoughts and actions. This body of work reflects a larger metaphor of the cyclical process of closure and renewal, as well as my own creative process and how I personally feel fortified through creating something from scratch.
