Artist Statement - Carnivals

 

I use photography as a means of self-expression – I make pictures for myself, to identify with hidden qualities of my character, to better understand my reality, and to express my interpretation of the world around me. A deeper understanding of myself and of my world allow me to explore fragments of  my life in an abstract form, and also to interact with an environment I would otherwise not allow myself  to engage with. My goal is to use my camera like Alice’s rabbit hole, to open a world; I’ve not been to in a long time a place of curious self-expression, but also a world of new relationships, new chances new beginnings and most importantly new stories


My choice of subject comes from a place of being a teenager fueled by an impetuous desire to zone out  weekends at carnivals’  to seek the unknown in darkness looking for the light within the shadows,. I am curious at what lies behind their dancing lights; this exploitation evokes a passage of time.  Past to present future.
I find myself interested in the results of immersing myself in the story the spiritual and recording my own reactions and actions to my world.  The photographs of the carnival come from that immersion.  Blending the bridge to spirit
