Digital photography can do amazing things. You can duplicate yourself until you run out of space on your image. You can tell a story. You can imagine yourself in another world. In our next assignment, we tackled an erasure assignment. We had to erase one (or more) significant item(s) that would change the image in a meaningful way.
I tried several different ideas, but I settled on a story many mothers know all too well.
Without any context, students critiqued my work as a mother trying to warn us of the dangers of unhealthy eating habits.
But here’s some context.
You’re a mom. You’re looking for a treat to eat. It could be anything. Maybe you’re a salty kind of gal. Maybe you’re a sweets kind of gal. You’re looking for your time to indulge and relax a little.
You’re about to take your first bite. Then your little one stares at you with this longing in his eyes. The other figures out a way to sneak off with the last one.

Moms, you love your little ones. Sometimes it’s ok to give them your last donut.
