dc.description.abstract Looking in a mirror can tell us many things: if our hair is looking its best, what our eye color is, or if our clothes match. The image we have of ourselves affects our everyday lives whether we realize it or not. The media and art in today's world can act as a catalyst or a constant for our self-image in many different ways and might change the way we think when we look in the mirror. Times are hard in our country with the war on terror, recession, and overall rising levels of various health issues (obesity, etc.). Therefore, maintaining a healthy relationship with one's self is of the utmost importance. This generation is going on to shape the future of our country, and self-confidence is one of the biggest roots to success."Project I Am Me" is a photography project which will act as a photo shoot in reverse. The subjects dictate the creative direction and the styling of themselves, and in turn end up expressing themselves as a media representative for their own self-image. I firmly believe that self-expression through art is one of the best outlets. As a photographer, I channel this privilege every day of my life and I want to take the opportunity in this thesis project to share the wonderful, diverse, healthy community that we live in as we "20 somethings" are on the verge of the real world.
