We learn in school that the human body is 55-60% water. Water is key to life. It’s found all around us every day.
With these photographs I explore the use of water and objects to understand how light, color, patterns, and texture can affect the composition of a photograph in an aqueous environment. My intention for these images is to take conventional objects and create new worlds in water.
I was curious about combing natural elements with soapy water: what visuals would I produce? These abstract images portray basic objects in a experimental fluid setting. Through changing techniques, elements and colors, I hope to create images that engage viewers.
Growing up in a suburb of Boston, Meghan Cronin is a high school student with a thirst for knowledge; she is eager to discover new ways of viewing the world. She is fascinated with the camera’s ability to capture unique moments in time. She is most interested in fine art and fashion photography and yet has many more categories to explore.
This past year Cronin received a Gold Key and two Honorable Mentions in Photography from the Boston Globe Scholastic Art and Writing awards sponsored by the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. In addition her photographs have been exhibited at Lesley University, Education First, Griffin Museum of Photography, and Lexington Center for the Arts. Meghan has photographed for Lush Cosmetics in Harvard Square. She has also photographed multiple projects for her school website, local theater events, and local musicians.
