Faith Totney Gallery 2022



I chose these topics because it fits in with what I attempt to do with my photography: raise awareness on issues, often ones that are stigmatized. I explored how these affected different people to gain insight on them and used that to influence how I approached it from a photographic standpoint to help me remain sensitive to the issues at hand.

As a photographer, I feel like it is my responsibility to highlight these issues, respectfully, to start a positive conversation.  

My title “Re:CLAIM!” symbolises mine and my model’s response to these issues, “reclaiming” them. It allows us to be creative, how we can change it, take back and make it positive. I felt inspired by their stories and wanted to help these models tell their stories.
