The focus of sneakers being used for their intended use or representing a person with a particular stereotyped style including the shoes. The first artwork on the left “Shoes & Action” was my attempt to combine my two ideas of an indoor commercial approach as well for an action photo with the shoes. I combined the two ideas together for my first artwork, leaning hard into the skating aspect of action and having a passion and love of skating I used skating as a way to display the skating and the shoes involved within the practical and aesthetic qualities. “Laces & Souls”, This artwork came from my own view on people’s fashion choice reflecting on their own personality, a persona or a cliche of a style. Seeing these different styles there is always a difference in shoes and the different sneakers they wear because it fits with them and their style they have decided to wear. Capturing these photos and working with the different photos made me think about the actual shoes. How they are soles and the people that are in my photos are souls so the idea of Laces of the shoes represent a person’s Soul from the shoe, which is the concept of this artwork. Exploring the different styles you might see on a daily basis.
