Photography tells untold stories and offers new perspectives to marvel upon. While some may only see the surface, it’s an artist’s challenge to go deeper and provide an avenue for new possibilities of connection with ourselves and others. Art is a way to reach a progressive state of consciousness beyond the physical matter of the scene and hopefully be part of the solutions to life’s inevitable challenges. A photographer’s role may be to create work that offers a fresh understanding of humanity, touching hearts uniquely and in line with Mother Nature, in balance and not separate from it. It’s a personal effort to express emotions and connect with something deep within us, possibly stemming from generational events untold. Without expressing these emotions, finding life’s balance becomes a struggle; one must create to exist on a meaningful level. Using black-and-white photography as a medium for this message gives plenty of opportunity to delve into a profound sense of being the being in front of the picture instead of the physical human. The ethereal energy beyond these constructs reveals the greatness of our being. Photography’s superpower lies in its limitless nature, allowing us to question our understanding of life and, hopefully, enrich our perspectives and offer a possibility of hope to connect and become more, for the legacy we leave can be found in our ability to embrace the moment and connect deeply with each other in this one precious moment in let’s be fair a very ‘busy doing’ world, where being ones true self can be tricky.
