Title: Oath

About the Photo:

This is a self portrait.

My intention with this collection has been to communicate the light beyond sadness. The metaphorical relationship between light and emotions is a central theme in my work. I have explored how hope can be visible even in utter darkness.

I wanted to create images simultaneously displaying both fragility and power, stillness and emotional volatility. Images which evoke a sense of ambiguity between the real and abstract.

Expressing these states and processes through words is challenging, if not impossible. This is why I am drawn toward the still image as my art form.
