I lOVE PHOTO!
My central focus for my portfolio was to capture "uncontrived moments of people focused naturally". I wanted to take photos of people in their natural, comfortable setting doing their everyday tasks. These settings may not have been unique to the people in the photos, however, the settings to most people, especially people at Blair, are unique, cultured and different. Here I also challenged myself to take photos that are different in perspective. Whether it's the streets of Hong Kong, the Philippines, New York or the Dominican Republic, beauty can be found in the simple things - in everyday, "normal" tasks.
I completed AP Photography at Blair Academy during my senior year. I look forward to using my photography skills to capture the city of Los Angeles while studying French at USC.
My name is Hannah Ciancarelli and I’m from Andover, NJ, but love to travel and take pictures of landscapes and nature. In my time at Blair, I’ve taken every photo course that has been offered, from Photo 1 all the way up to AP and an independent study. Through my work in these classes, I have expanded the breadth and depth of my photographic repertoire. I grew from putting together a simple collection of nature photos in my freshman year to capturing a story of grief through the photos for my AP portfolio concentration. I’ll be continuing to pursue photography in addition to other academic subjects in the Humanities at Lafayette College next year.
