For The Graduates is a conceptual limited series that delves into the experiences felt after graduation. I spoke to alumni from various universities to gauge their experience leaving higher education. I focused on the changes they faced, the perceived pressure of fulfilling expectations and the process of coming to grips with the “real world”. My images are a response to the information I had gathered.

To create each scene I chose to construct scratch-built dioramas. For me, they created a tangible, physical environment that reflected the internal, unspoken feelings and experiences of those interviewed. In doing so, they became an essential aspect of the photographic series.
