Melanie Bonajo says that her ideas are “link jingles” in her head. What are your ideas like? In order to make sense of the jingles she has in her head, Melanie Bonajo gives them structure. She questions herself, which leads to her questioning everyone else. She makes photographs just to record her jingles. It's a picture diary of the most bizarre form.

Implications - Melanie Bonajo states that she attempts "to shape awareness by giving expression to the contradictions of contemporary life--with dignity." Her goal is to leave viewers with something beautiful to look at and contemplate. She believes that art has the power to make you "feel what you see," which is an incredible feeling.
