"Cleaning" by Jackson BarnettJackson is a second year Asian Studies student originally from Washington, D.C. His photographs have appeared in the Denver Post “Hey Reverb!” section, the CU Independent and the Colorado Daily. After graduating from high school a semester early and traveling for four months, his photographs of his journey were displayed in a gallery showing at Collective in Maryland. Jackson plans to continue to find a balance of art, storytelling and journalism through his camera lens.

Cleaning was taken after the second day of cleaning my house on the Hill. When I first opened the door, the house that would become my home for the semester looked like a ‘flop house.’ There was more dirt inside, on the walls and even on the ceiling than on my scrap of grass-less front yard. On my hands and knees I scrubbed every inch of that house, and the dirt running off my sponge after washing it in my sink was too interesting of a scene not to take a photograph of.”
