Love, Bunny Style

    The word love can refer to a variety of different emotions related to a sense of strong affection and attachment. Love for me as always been a struggle, not knowing why we all strive for a feeling that can brighten our day or darken it. so I headed out to the one place where people can go and experience love ( with a little price tag) the famous Moonlight Bunny Ranch. Here I interviewed some women who openly talked about what love meant to them and how much it plays in their own personal life.

    Miss Bunny Love was the first girl that I interviewed, she is careful in how she approaches love. "I have been in love with someone, but I feel like its something that I have to be careful with. I see a lot of girls around here that like to throw it around, they  would say "O I love him , I love him" it makes me cringe. sometimes it seems like they are using the word carelessly. What is the real meaning if you love everyone, if you suppose to love that one person that you want to be with. I like to be careful with how I use the word. Am not in love with someone right now, but I do fall for people easily. I like to let myself know that just because you really care for someone and want to spend time with him or her doesn't really mean that you love him or her."
     My next girl Miss Pairs took love into a spiritual realm. "I believe that love is real because do to my belief in Christ and what Christ represents (is love). Everything that I feel for another human being, even for people that I don't know or people I know. It's Just a warm feeling that is really hard to express but it's defiantly there. It's  a feeling that is very unconditional, it's not like any other feeling that you have. I don't have a one love right now, but I have loved before. I even have love for my clients that I see, I have a love for them and affection for them. I want the best for another human being and their lively hood."

     Miss Brooklyn Star is a very loving person. " The word love I think goes more off of someone's actions. I do say the love word a lot, every time I talk to someone on the phone or in general. I tell my family and close friends that i love them. I think it is important for people to know that they are loved, I also think it is important for people to see that love. Love for me is also a deep scene of caring for somebody. I think there is one real deep love, but don't know if we all will find it. Right now i do have a very deep profound love for  somebody.
     Miss Willow feels that you should be in love with one person at a time. " I definitely don't think that love is here in the brothel or with my clients. Love just happens, you can't plan it. You fall in love for different reasons.

     Every one of these women response was very helpful in how love can be defined. Even thou I didn't find in what I was really looking for, I did learn that there is no true meaning to what love is. But someone did tell me that if I am  struggling with love that i have no big problem in how I am Handling love.

Here are some projects that I have been working on. hopefully I will finish some and upgrade others.

My first project is my website. I need to finish upgrading my photos.

My next projects is another website that I had created for my cousin's car club. Here I need to upload more photos and need to make a meeting with the club to get more information.

My last project that I've also started was juxtaposing still photographs and videos of the some subject to see if the viewer gets the same reaction when viewing them.  see my post below.

Last semester a fellow classmate had posted a blog on the Sierra Nevada College blogspot . She writs "photography vs video which is better? You decide!". Well for my final i would like to put that to the test. I will keep photographing in my usual spaces, but also i will be using video . My goal is to see if the viewer will have the some reaction to a still photo, to a person holding their pose in a video.

       In the summer of 2009 I began to visit Dennis Hof Famous Moonlight Bunny Ranch. I was not there for pleasure but to get behind the scene of the bunny ranch. I wanted to get to know the girls for who they are not for what they do. Well sure I did asked why they are there, but I did more than interview them I also let them into my personal life. I thought it was fair enough to share some of my life experience with them. I have learned from them as mush as I learned from myself. During my interview I let the girls get ready, or whatever they do on a daily bases. I also was photographing them getting ready watching T.V., or working out. After each interview I left there feeling with a unique connection with each individual girl that i had talk to. I didnt want to go in there with sex or prostitution on my mind, want i wanted from this was i show that these girls are not there to do harm, but to make living and have fun in what they are doing.

Some of these photos was used as part of my B.F.A. Show at my current school. I am very thankful for them having me there. THANKS GIRLS!!

Over my spring break I had gone back to interview my girls in what love means to them and how serious they take this word. Their response are one of a kind.  

** I will post this project soon**

Thank You,

my photo in good use lol

  In October of 09 I had gone out to the Dennis Hof's World Famous Moonlight Bunny Ranch to photograph Dennis and his girls. Dennis birthday was coming up soon and he wanted a photo to put on his invitations. His party was HO-WAIIAN themed I never got to see how the invites looked until over the weekend.  I don't know if this was the real invite that had gone out to everyone that he had invited. I know this isn't the best invite in the world. I was happy to see my photo up like this, i have never seen any of my photo put to use HAHA.  I did not design this invite i just took the photo.

Life is very sweet.
