AHA New Bedford

Artist: Devon Lewis
Artist Statement: My name is Devon Lewis. I’m 18 years old and I’m a media technology student at Greater New Bedford Voc Tech. Since I was young I always had a passion for photography, throughout high school a spark went off in me and I decided it was something I could see myself doing in the future . I really believe that the simplicity of taking a photo is so much more then pressing a button, it’s the power of the story it tells.

Artist: Yue Ryder
Artist Statement: My name is Yue Ryder, I'm 20 years old and I'm a New Bedford cosplayer and photographer. Other then cosplaying one of my many hobbies was taking photos. I loved the feeling of getting behind a camera and just taking a picture of what ever I saw was beautiful. Little did I know that many people would tell me I had a great eye for taking a photo. Whether it be of a person, animal, or even nature I was complimented about my work. I decided to try out photography so I took away to the books and learned everything I could about it. At the age of 17 I started to take my own cosplay photos and even had the chance to work on building up a small page to share my work. I hope to be able to work with many people for Photoshoot and even take part to help small business out if they need a photo to be taken. My 5 photos I would like to share are some of my most proud shots I've taken around New Bedford.

Artist: Brandon Cabral
Artist Statement: I chose these photos because when I’m away from home this is what I think about when I miss New Bedford. The water, the docks, the weather, the secret spots. Thats what I think each of these photos represents, The water and ocean and how its such a big part of how the city came to fruition. The docks, because they’ve always been a way we work and eat. The weather, because man I love being able to enjoy all the seasons. From those super hot days to those “can’t leave your house” snowstorms. And finally the secret spots of the city that even I, (someone who’s lived here their entire life) still discover daily.

Artist: Annasaskhea Azor
Artist Statement: My name is Annasaskhea Azor and I'm a Massachusetts based portrait photographer. I've always had an interest in the arts but it wasn't until July of last year that I put the hands to the plow and picked up a camera. From then on it's been almost second nature. I started just by taking photos of a few of my friends but it's grown to be so much more than that. From shooting for a blog, to a gym, to an online magazine company photography's allowed me to meet and create with so many people from different backgrounds.
