Photojournalism Final

I created a photo story that shows the life of my husband, a student engineer. My pictures are in a specific order and they start by showing my husband as a student and employee first. As this project developed, I noticed little things about my husband’s day to day life that I hadn’t noticed before. I began to see little acts of love… from using my homemade ceramics that I crafted as a child to celebrating the accomplishments of our friends over dinners. Even though Jesse may spend the majority of his time enthralled in his work, I’m still a part of it. And as you can see, he is a part of my work too.
