Senior Thesis Portfolios

Skylar Gottschalk 2021

My work is about a point in my life where I felt alone and very low. In each of my images you can see that my face is not in them. I have always been afraid of people staring at me and judging me because I don’t like the feeling of people talking badly about me or making fun of me. I'm hiding away to try to hide from judgmental eyes, from those who choose violence in their words. In my images the viewer is only forced to look around at everything else in the image. It makes them uncomfortable because they don’t have a safe spot to look at. Not only do I make the viewer uncomfortable with the way I remain anonymous, but I also make them uncomfortable with my unconventional ways of posing.
