May is our first month curating this new section dubbed, “Photo of the Month.” Each month, students from around the area will submit their works, and the best ones will be featured here. This month, Alexis Molinaro and Nik James, who are both enrolled at UNF, are our featured photographers. Read on to find out how they created these breathtaking photos.

Photo Title: Transposition #2
Process: Digital Pigment Print
Camera: Nikon D3000
Location: Downtown Jacksonville
Artist’s Statement: In the series Transposition, I illustrate sequences of change, repetition, and movement through a space by using similar, miniature sized objects. On location, in downtown Jacksonville, I created small scale installations with miniature objects and photographed them during a “decisive moment.”
