Artist Statement – Jocelyn Young

People have always thought me a little different. I never knew how to handle that difference – was it a good thing? Or a bad thing? After years of learning the digital camera and shooting everything under the sun, I finally took a hard look at who I really am. I am different; I am a little weird. In my self-assessment, I realized that I like biology and I like animals and I like the water. So, that is what I focus my photographic attention on. Using my own backyard pool, I photograph people under the water using my underwater camera. My main model is my 16-year-old daughter, an enthusiastic accomplice, and an excellent swimmer and diver.
