Artist Statement - John R. Ayala Jr

Artist Statement



Photography has been a passion since its introduction to me in high school. It's the medium I've chosen to express myself artistically, emotionally, and spiritually. When I go out to create images, I usually don't have anything specific in mind to photograph. I go to locations, wander about, and wait for the subject to choose me. Some of my works represent my childhood, for example the images involving the miniatures. In era which video games, high tech electronic games or toys did not exists, I entertained myself with toy soldiers, electric trains, Hot Wheels, and the most famous one of all GI Joe. The latter being the one I created adventures with, moreover, he was the reason why I had joined the military, therefore, giving me my real life adventures and experiences.
