Haley Jamieson ’16 featured her photography in the downstairs gallery from Thursday, May 12, to Monday, May 16. Her photography reveals the parallels found in human emotion and in nature.

Jamieson explains in her artist statement, which was emailed to the Archer community, “I originally started this project by wanting to draw connections between human emotion and natural lighting, specifically sunrise or sunset when the light is the most diverse.”

As she continued her project, however, her focus shifted to how humans are physically and emotionally mirrored in nature.

“For the majority of my images, I used the mood that I felt match the sky or lighting as a direction for my model. I then branched out into reflections of colors between just the images themselves, not necessarily a direct connection between portrait and landscape,” Jamieson said.

Jamieson’s older brother Nathan Jamieson said the photography exhibition “truly captures the diversity that is inherent in every human being.”
