Petronella Ytsma tries to find emotional truth in the images she photographs. She describes her work with the people exposed to the chemical Agent Orange during the Vietnam War as “living within a prayer.” The grace with which they live despite their circumstances reinforces her deeply held anti-war feelings. Write about a deeply held belief you have. Describe your belief and explain what reinforces those beliefs.
Now create an image that expresses your belief. Pick a medium: a photo, a collage, a painting, a drawing or a computer graphic. Now create a title for your image.
