dc.description.abstract When I was four years old, my father asked me what I wanted for my fifth birthday. I told him that there was nothing I wanted more than to have my own camera. I got my wish: a black, Polaroid instant camera. I remember taking pictures of everyone at my party that day. There was certain magic in this new boxy contraption that could take images and develop them before my eyes, in a matter of seconds. The camera and I have had a love affair ever since. Last year when I studied in France, I traveled to places that I had only dreamed of before. I took pictures of everything I saw, hoping I'd be able to share them with people someday.I started writing little poems when I was nine years old. My parents would usually post them on the bulletin board in our kitchen. Sometimes I would write little stories and make drawings to go with them. My grandmother usually took those and many are still in her house in Montana.I have been creating images all my life in the form of photographs, poems, stories and drawings. I feel it is one of the things I do best. This project is a compilation of my original work combining poetry, short stories and photography; therefore, I am calling this project ''Images.''
