I chose to join the Project Identity Photography program because:

I was inspired by photographers that can turn simple things into something extraordinary. Art has been an outlet for my creative side and has helped me express my emotions in multiple ways. Being a freshman in high school, it is hard for a teenager to figure out who they are and what they are meant to do in life. P.I. Photography is helping me learn more about myself with every photo I capture. I have learned more about my interests, skills, and maybe my perspective of life. With my camera, I want to educate everyone around the world of the beauties of nature and why it is important to be environmentally sustainable. I hope that I will influence and inspire those who see my work and take up the lifestyle of becoming ESG for the sake of our world's health and beauty! - Sophia Schnatz, age 14.

Catching a glimpse of a stalk of soaked lettuce, there are many opportunities of capturing detail. The water sits on the veggie with a reflection of the sun, the shading makes the image captivating, and the close range of the photo builds a strange relationship.

Turnip the Beat, 2021

Walking by a Farmer’s table at the Harvest Festival, a group of Turnips caught my eye. The image was not too overwhelming but not too dull. This is seen as a comfortable image to glance at and to keep your mind thinking and wondering about new details.

Two sitting Cauliflowers with their stems wrapped around the curd shows a compelling story of two similar veggies that have very different back stories.
