MY NAME IS EMILY ANGELINE AND I AM A COLLEGE STUDENT STUDYING INTEGRATED MEDIA ARTS WITH A MINOR IN GENDER STUDIES AND COMMUNICATIONS AT JUNIATA COLLEGE.
I decided to study media and technology because the media is constantly influencing society. I want to be part of the entertainment industry so I can help to create unique stories that are not depicted in the media. I firmly believe that representation matters; therefore, the more minorities that are involved in the media, the closer we are to depicting the real world. I want to create technology and tell stories that will change how someone thinks and feels about a certain subject or the world around them. I love taking pictures of of scenery and portraits of people. I think pictures takes people to a different world and exploits different emotions for the viewer. My goal is to be part of a team that makes media that impacts people everyday in their life.
As an artist I want people to understand the beauty of the world around them. I take pictures of nature and landscapes so that people can take in the beauty of nature. I want people to stop for a moment and reflect on living in the moment them instead of going from place to place without any thought. In my opinion, my photos display how simple and beautiful the world is. We are constantly surrounded by nature but sometimes we are too busy to stop and take in where we are and who we are with.
I draw inspiration from different all types of sources: photography, film, art, and everyday life. People in my everyday life influence me to continue to create art though film, photography, or design. I want people to understand that art does not always have to come from huge influences like celebrities or even the media but from everyday life itself.
