It’s springtime in Savannah and I’m standing alone in the humid night air. As I walk to the railing on the deck I can see my body face down in the pool. I didn’t know it then, but the disembodied experience of that moment would follow me through the next few years. These otherworldly photographs show are my journey through vulnerability and fear to find truth.
Without Words was created viscerally and subconscious while working in nature. In my search for a way back to self, I found that being rooted in nature was the only way home. This work is a reflection of my inability to speak in a time of personal crisis, emotions coming out of me and into my work.
This examination of the darker side of self has been cathartic for me, as these images have come from an intangible place, created from the psyche. These emotions I created inside of nature are a metaphor of life for those moments when we are at a loss for words and find ourselves detached from self and searching for a way back home.
