Williejane Dent

For her thesis project, Dent explores the universal feelings of love and heartbreak. She contacts previous romantic partners and takes their portraits (including a final self portrait), using a 4x5 camera, and printing the negatives using a tintype process. This creates a nostalgic appearance to the photos, as they recreate the artist’s past and inform the person that she has become.
