Kristen Vetter

 

No society is without good or evil; it is an injustice to all people and cultures to believe so. From my own observations as a traveler, I have discovered that moral concepts are abstract and individualized, that nothing is simple and perspectives are subjective and unique.
My series of photographs, captured in an area synonymous with conflict, are full of contrasting elements: beauty, devastation, and the mundane.
I document architecture and people within their environments. I then manipulate each image by hand with drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture to emphasize aspects of growth, change, and transition. The images that are created from this process emphasize empathy, and careful looking to offer clues to our common ancestry, common daily practices, and common struggles.
