Lindsay Nielsen Photography: Remarkable in the Unremarkable and Exceptional in the Unexceptional

By Lindsay Nielsen, VI Form
“There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer” – Ansel Adams (1983)
screen-shot-2016-11-29-at-7-17-22-pmMy  first camera was a $200 Nikon Coolpix that I bought with all of my babysitting money the summer I turned 13. I had always loved photography and the idea of capturing moments we can’t get back. When I got older, I started watching Youtube videos and teaching myself how to take more advanced pictures. My mom was always asking me where her Canon DSLR was, because I would constantly borrow it to take photos of our two Vizslas. During sophomore year my godfather, Joseph Ratner, gave me his old Nikon D3100 and I was elated. It was my first serious camera, and I had every intention to make the most of it. Photography has always been a passion of mine and it was an amazing moment hearing that I was one of the recipients of the Class of 1968 Grant. I built this portfolio the summer after my junior year and I will continue to use my camera to capture everything around me.

 This portfolio below seeks to distill what is remarkable in the unremarkable and what is exceptional in the unexceptional.  In my efforts to retrain my own eyes, I have tried to disclose the beauty that lurks in the mundane and in the ordinary.
