The second and equally impactful heartbreak happened only a year ago.

Her best friend was murdered.

Both times that she faced this heart break, photography became her outlet.

Photographs she takes today still mirror the feelings that she felt. They express her anxiety and her sadness.

Not only do her photographs portray a strong emotional feeling, they also are compositionally intriguing.

Her pictures have strong lighting, contrast and texture.

Bruce got started on photography in high school where she was on the year

book team.

Her show “Broken” is printed in black and white.

“A black ribbon is the symbol for skin cancer,” Bruce said, “I wanted to incorporate my mom into my art so that is why I printed my show in black and white.”

After graduating, Bruce hopes to become a high school photography teacher in northwest Arkansas.

She also wants to continue her photography and possibly delve into nature photography.

Bruce hopes that her photography helps people to not feel alone when they are going through tough times.
