In Sight

Elizabeth graduated in December from the college with an associate degree in applied science for her professional photography studies. A short-term goal is an internship at a newspaper; long term, a career as a photojournalist or documentary photographer.

The photographs here are among those she took last summer at a nursing home in La Paz, Mexico. "For over three months I talked with the people and photographed them," she says. She titled the resulting portfolio of images Ignored Voices. Of the project, Elizabeth writes, "Because of our fear of death [elderly people] are commonly tucked away out of sight, voices ignored." Her images are an attempt to "challenge the viewer to think about the finite nature of our physical existence."
