Our species almost always conveys events in the form of stories, and it is that narrative quality that I cherish in any work of art. It would make sense, then, that narrative is what I seek to convey in my own work. Contrasting forms of photography often inspire me: the photojournalism that made the world smaller for us and the fictional landscapes that revealed we could make photographs, not just document. I seek to express a narrative that viewers can invest their emotions in whether it's through fabrication or documentation; I hope they make you feel. 

Tara Ashton is a photographer from Georgia living in Greenville, SC specializing in portraiture. The goal of Tara's photography isn't just beautiful photos, but a sense of authenticity and depth with every shot. She is available world-wide.
