I grew up in northern
k e n t u c k y, in an old rivertown, not to
far from the countryside. The scenery around
me has always been an inspiration. I admire
the history and simplicity of American folk life
& it definitely shows in my artwork. Objects
& places have a life of their own, no matter
how rundown. I aim to portray the poetry of a
scene through color harmony, pattern play,
and texture.

I’m always looking at artists and illustrators


working currently, but the few most influential
to me are Grandma Moses, Edward Gorey,
Henry Darger, and Vincent Van Gogh.

SASSSQUATCH IS a
purportedly ape
l i k e c r e a t u r e that inhab-
its forests, mainly in the Hawaii region.
A “Sasssquatch is usually described as a
small, fair, long haired bipedal humanoid;
with a mechanical contraption attached
to her eye at all times, who also has a
deep infatuation for circular fried dough,
in a variety of colors and shapes. And in
the iconic words of Kanye west “she is a
mother effin monster.”

“Sasssquatch” is a pen name for Caelan


Hughes. Caelan’s interest in photography
began with her nostalgic attitude for a
time previous to her own, while growing
up in this fast paced technologically fueled
world. She used only disposable cameras
up until a year ago when she received her
first professional-esque camera, her Nikon
D3000 (also known as Karl). Despite
her love for Karl, her main camera of
choice is her olympus OM-1 properly
named Zeus. Her work is largely inspired
by the beautiful backdrop of her home in
Hawaii, her sassy friends and her work
with the nonprofit organization “Project
Focus Hawaii” which uses photography
therapy to help at risk youth heal through
the power of art and photography.

I like going on adventures and
meeting new people. I like the
change of the seasons and black
mascara. I like ripe raspberries,
music that is perfectly parallel to
your life and all things nostalgia.
I’m inspired and fascinated by
many many things. Bits and pieces
like genuine beauty, the first day
of spring and midnight realizations.
I love to capture moments and
remnants of memories. I am truly
proud of the images I create.

All of the art I create is merely


a reflection of the way I see the
world. Dreamlike, youthful, colorful,
and slightly odd. I want to cherish
everything in a way that is
beautiful and eloquent.

I feel like I excel with


e v e r y p h o t o g r a p h I take,
and I love sharing my journey with anyone
who is interested to see. This year has so far
provided me with a bundle of ideas that have
emerged in my mind. I love the feeling of being
able to execute my visions so precisely, and see
that foggy image in my mind appear in real
life; so much so that I can walk through the set,
touch the props, interact with the model, and in
the end have a result that can be seen by
anyone, and through printing turn into a
physical imperative object. It is the planning
and time that goes into each photograph that is
so vital.

I remember watching the September Issue


and feeling so inspired. Not by the bitterness
of the fashion industry, but about the plan-
ning that goes into each photo shoot for Vogue
Magazine. I love surrounding myself in fabrics,
or remembering poignant memories from my
childhood, or searching aimlessly through objects
in a thrift store and feeling inspired to create a
photograph, whether it is with using the objects
I have found, or trying to encapsulate a feeling
or mood that I remember from past moments
in my life.

I was defending my family with small fingers
And big words

It is time to swallow my black soul


Time to swallow my black soul

We live in a city built by grief

and I

A s I a l w a y s s a y when it
comes to explain why i take photos, it
started because i have a terribly shitty
memory. I always get into arguments
with my friends because I can’t
remember things that happened to
us. I don’t know if the reason is that I
have an extremely selective memory
or just that I’m frightfully stupid, but
I had to figure a way to capture all
these moments so i would never forget
them. Photography seemed to be the
best way to do that, and i actually got
caught up in it.

To explain or analyze my work seems,


at the same time, very embarrassing
and absolutely inappropriate. I have,
to be completely honest, I have no idea
what I’m doing at the very moment
I’m doing it. I guess you could qualify it
as “hazardous.” My technique, frankly,
has limits, my settings are always
wrong, and I wouldn’t change that for
anything in the world. It’s actually the
heart of my work.

I ’ m P a u l a P i r e . I’m 20 and I
study Medicine. Photography makes me happy,
although this statement sounds simple and not
very original. You can only capture a feeling
with a camera and with your sight, because in
the following fleeting moments that feeling will
have changed.

I make analogical photographs as I find them


more real. I don’t really understand the inter-
nal mechanism why they are so, but maybe
it’s because of the physical process with which
the photo is done. The film captures all things
in front of it, with all shades/hues that can be
seen (not with all the definition). It’s similar to
when you remember a picture in your mind.
Our brain remembers what it interprets,
the shades.

There are no transcendental ideas in my pics,


I just search for beautiful things, colors, light…
Ideas are infer(r)ed, or seen by the person who
sees the pic, in a really subjective process.

Pisces sign, I’m very creative. I enjoy
photography, jewelry making, writing
poetry, and painting. I’m inspired by music,
the vintage eras, & (even though I shoot
digital) the beautiful imperfections of film. I
title almost all my photos, I believe it helps
them to tell a story and better express
myself through my photography.
