The purpose of this project was to emphasize the struggles of having an unhealthy addiction to success. In order to spread awareness of this topic, I created a photo essay with a total of 8 photos. A photo essay is a form of visual storytelling that can present a narrative through images. Within the photo essay, I touch upon what can become of someone’s emotions when they are tunnel-focused on achieving a goal. Although photography doesn’t use the use of words, the emotions portrayed through the images tell a story in hopes of expressing an overarching theme. Moreover, I wanted to challenge myself and attempt to evoke emotions from the audience with this series of photographs.
