Artist Statement

This photo was taken by me for a digital photography course. I took this picture due to the remembrance of my middle school years. I used to be bullied because of where I lived. My neighborhood has quite a few dangerous characters within the area. As such I was made fun of for living in a bad neighborhood and I was told to change. I visited several of my friend’s homes and was completely confused. I didn’t know anything about the homes or them really. Everything was so complicated in their families and I didn’t fit in. As such I went home. After that I thought about how different our lives were from one another. At the end of the day if I had been given the chance to change my life, I wouldn’t take it. I like who I am because it’s my home, it is who I am.
