Megan Thurman, an American photographer, is also a student in Southern California majoring in English and minoring in Art (focused on photography). She started shooting seriously after a trip to Europe on summer during high school, uses both digital and film cameras. “Everything I saw was so beautiful that I didn't want to leave it behind. When I came home, I began using photographs in school projects to illustrate what we read in my senior year literature class. From there, I became more involved in taking portraits of friends.”
Megan found her grandfather's Canon AE-1 and began using it with cheap colour film. She is currently working on a series focused on women in literature and tragedy, especially with black and white film. “My love for literature tends to blend into my photography because narratives are very important to me.”
