About the Cover
By Stephanie Benjamin
Medium: Acrylic on canvas, photographed under different filters
Feeling pensive, I started a painting with the intent of making artwork about my first year of medical school. While working I realized that I was not just thinking about medical school but also about my significant other, my future and my life in general. After I finished, I felt that the original colors were not quite capturing everything I had just been contemplating. I decided to photograph my artwork using different camera settings and applying various color filters. After many attempts I came up with this combination of photos; each of the four images captures a particular aspect of my life. When I look at them together I see all of the thoughts and feelings currently roaming around in my mind.
