These images were created in environments where crowds gather to experience a series of happy moments, such as amusement parks or carnivals. By digitally removing the background elements from the original photographs, I visually isolate adults, teenagers, and children in transition between these moments. Although they gaze toward a prize to win, a thrill to experience, or a concession stand to visit, the individuals are stripped of their spectacular surroundings and become solitary subjects to contemplate.
