Aimee moved from South Florida to New York as an artist to study art and design after being accepted to Parsons in 2013. She is expected to graduate this Fall with her BFA in Communication Design.
Her grandfather and father both were photographers. Her grandfather worked from his own studio doing corporate headshots around New York City for companies like Met Life Insurance. Her father later moved to Florida where he found work in tourism with local companies like the Paddle Wheel Queen. Her father moved on from photography when Aimee was born. What remains are the stories from adventures on his photo shoots, a box of sepia toned photographs of friends and a lingering cough he earned from years of breathing in chemicals developing film. To Aimee photography always seemed like an art form that was best left in the darkroom. When Aimee moved to the city she finally bought her own camera and her curiosity in film and digital media took over. Like film being exposed to light, the imprint of photography and other types of visual communication started to develop in her life. So far her favorite parts of photography are the photos of the friends she has made, and the experiences she has shared with them from behind her camera.
