MY NAME IS ALEAH. IT WAS NEVER A CHILDHOOD DREAM OF MINE TO BECOME A PHOTOGRAPHER, IT WASN'T SOMETHING I FANTASIZED OVER IN HOPES OF BEING SOMEONE FAMOUS. I COULDN'T EVEN TELL YOU WHEN OR WHERE IT STARTED. IT COULD'VE BEEN MY OBSESSIVE MOTHER WITH ALL HER PICTURE TAKING AT EVERY GIVEN MOMENT. IT COULD'VE BEEN THE CULTURE AND ENVIRONMENT I GREW UP IN THAT HELPED ME NOTICE THE THINGS THAT WEREN'T APPRECIATED. WHATEVER IT WAS, I WAS MERGED INTO THIS GIFT. I AM NOT SOMEONE THAT JUST HAS A CAMERA AND LABELS HERSELF A PHOTOGRAPHER,  MY PARENTS AREN'T RICH, NO ONE BOUGHT MY CAMERA OR EQUIPMENT, NO ONE INSPIRED ME TO TAKE THIS PATH IT WAS JUST LINED UP AND SET BEFORE ME. I HOPE YOU, WHO ARE READING CAN CONNECT WITH ME THROUGH MY PHOTOGRAPHS.

MATTHEW 6:33


"MY MIND, FROM MY EXPERIENCES TO SURROUNDINGS TO BELIEFS TO FREE WILL OF CHOICES I'VE MADE. MY HANDS, THE INSTRUMENTS THAT I USE TO CONSTRUCT PHYSICAL INTO VISUAL. MY EYES, THAT SEE VISIONS AND OBSERVE THE SURROUNDING MATTER AROUND ME. THEY ALL PLAY APART IN MY VISUALS, EACH PICTURE AND EXPRESSION I CHOOSE TO DEVELOP HAS BEEN A PRODUCT OF MY MIND, HANDS, EYES AND SOUL. I'VE CHOSEN TO USE MY GIFT TO CONNECT WITH OTHERS. USING THE VISION GOD GAVE ME I WISH TO MAKE YOU UNEASY VIEWING MY WORK. I WANT A SENSE OF POSITIVE "BOTHEREDNESS" TO SPEAK TO YOUR INTELLECT. I CREATE TO CAUSE EMOTIONS. I CREATE TO FORCE YOU TO SEE WHAT YOU CAN'T SEE WITH YOUR BARE EYES. I CREATE TO GIVE THE UNNOTICED THE ATTENTION IT HAS LONGED FOR. I CREATE TO DRAW YOUR SOUL IN AND CONNECT WITH YOU."
-SIGNED HER, ALEAH
