Here’s how I created my college debt self-portrait:
1) Took 4 pieces of tissue and taped all sides together.
2) Balled a heap of some more tissue to stuff inside the sack.
3) Gathered the tissue on all four sides.
4) Wrapped a piece of yarn around the top.
Once I got this down, half of my problem was solved. Then, I had to imagine this gigantic money sack squashing me. It was a lot of fun and I owe a huge thanks to my human tripod (who asked not be credited) for taking my direction well and capturing some pretty funny shots of myself that I was able to choose from.
Contact sheet above are some images I got from putting on a timer and setting on the ground. For the sake of using the perfect angle, I didn’t take any of these, but I love them and wanted to share. 🙂
Creating these kinds of images are really fun and I look forward to creating more.
What do you think of the student debt loan crisis? Any one struggling to pay back loans? How are you budging your money?
