MELISSA YATES

BFA PHOTOGRAPHY & DIGITAL ARTS

    The photography and video work I produce focuses on the process of grief, specifically for the death of loved ones. I grew up in a family where I was considerably younger than the rest of my family members, and being surrounded by my elders has always taught me how to appreciate the people who surround you. Having viewed from a very young age the passing of family and friends and having both watched and experienced the grieving process, I am interested in the methods by which we cope with and process the death of a loved one. By taking a therapeutic approach, the work facilitates this process and enables growth beyond grief—the mindset that I hope one has after viewing my work.
