In 2011, inspired by my love of the classical portraits of the 15th century Masters and intrigued by the philosophies of Carl Jung, I first began “Jung at HeArt” to further explore Jungian archetypes through my photography. As I researched Jung’s two primary anthropomorphic archetypes of the unconscious mind; Anima and Animus, I was drawn to the personification of these symbols. Simultaneously, I was drawn to capturing adult personas residing within younger subjects. I wondered if today’s modern children could identify their inherent personalities within Jung’s archetypes. Armed with a barrage of images symbolizing Jung’s Anima and Animus and a child friendly explanation of the characteristics residing in each, I set out on an experiment of sorts. Would my potential subjects independently identify themselves with the Jungian archetypes I had aligned them to without my influence? Indeed they did. This portfolio of images is a result of our collaboration. They have been showcased in APG exhibitions “Jane Jackson Selects” and “the Airport Show at Hartsfield International Airport” in Atlanta, and the Lionsgate film: "What to expect When you are Expecting"
