Student Stories: Andrea Wolfe /// Ordinary, Alive, and Beautiful

I am a mother to four young children and I document our life almost daily. Yes, I do it for my children. For their future. For their memories. But these days, in the continual battle against losing myself to the whispers that try to tell me that my life is mundane and unimportant, these days

Student Stories: Jessica Holleque /// Mothers and Makers

My personal work has always been, at its most simple, about leaning into curiosities. When photography felt like an island (fueled by a social media world that breeds comparison and competition), I found myself longing for a healthier creative community. I grew tired of only seeing the highlight reels of artists’ polished finished products. I
