Hailee Potter (M.F.A., photography, 2017) is an artist whose work explores issues of human perception, identity, and social norms that are present in today's society. She seeks to empower others to see the world in a different light, stripped of society's expectations, exposing the raw truths of the human condition that is rarely discussed. Potter creates images that question the definitions of portraiture and its perceived meanings of truth. Her style is simple and straightforward, but complex in its process. Her work falls in between straight portraiture and staged narratives.
