Screen Shot 2016-01-14 at 10.23.35 AMAll the photos show elder’s in modeling positions in not so flattering ways. The not so flattering parts of the picture, however, made the picture more interesting to look at. Most of the pictures seem out of place and the mind tends to focus on things that do not seem natural. It’s disguised with multiple bright objects in the picture. There are many contrasting colors that also make the pictures stand out

Screen Shot 2016-01-14 at 10.11.52 AMWhen you look at the photo, the first  thing that you notice are the bright colors of the towel and the umbrella. Then you see the shade that the umbrella is projecting on the chair and finally you notice the women sitting there. The Umbrella and the color of the shadow that it shows blocks the women from view as well as make her skin look sun burnt.

Most of Elisa Chang’s work illuminate parts of Hawaii that most people don’t think about and don’t take the time to look closely at. Her photos are different from the normal models and orange sunsets and seems more daring, which makes it stand out against most.
