Be Eggceptional

Don't change yourself to become someone else's version of perfect.

Artist Statement

My concept was to show row upon row of plain eggs, with one egg shining forth that was “eggceptional.” I noticed many subtle differences among the more than five dozen eggs that were photographed. Friends and family pitched in to search for the perfect “eggceptional” egg that would fit into the photograph, yet really command attention. The Ukranian egg I found encourages us not just to stand out from the crowd, but to strive to be the best we can be—right where we are.
