re•vis•it is an editorial photo narrative that represents a feeling of nostalgia for a time one was never a part of. In this series of photographs, the viewer follows four women as they return to their hometown to explore the city they grew up in and revisit a place that not only shaped them into the adults they are now, but also brought them together as friends—a bond that they kept strong into their adulthood. The viewer goes on a journey of rediscovery with the women as they visit their old high school, bus stop, convenience store, car wash, and neighborhood. The women experience many feelings on this journey as they remember what it was like to be carefree teens before they had the responsibilities of adulthood. The transition from high school to college to the real world can be particularly rough if one forgets how to be carefree and enjoy the small moments in life. As an artist and college student, I believe that we can sometimes get caught up in trying to have it all together when in reality everyone is still trying to figure out some aspect of their life. With re•vis•it, I purposely brought together a team of very amazing, creative women to create this series; if it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t have been able to capture the emotions of joy and freedom as easily as we did.
