I am Chris Tran, a 17-year-old photographer from Oklahoma City headed to Brown University in the fall. For some, photography is a record of reality that may come close to depicting truth. Although photography has this documentary value, I want to explore its potential for capturing uncertainty. My storytelling comes from a blend of fantasy and everyday reality. Through my images, I want to craft narratives that are familiar but also offer escape. However, I am always learning, experimenting and growing… and perhaps my intention really isn’t to create new worlds, but to reshape existing ones.
