I recently went through an incredible amount of anxiety and
depression- which you can read about by following my blog at
cameraandconverse.blogspot.com . the april 22 entry
After this experience I kept trying to explain how trapped in my mind I felt and how consumed by my own mental illness and fear but no one would understand, so I took to my camera and I decided that I was going to step back from my traditional portrait work and I was going to start making images that convey feeling. That scare and intruige you as much as my anxiety and depression has for me. I want you to have a strong reaction to these pieces. "If it makes you comfortable, it isn't art". These images are symbolic of a fresh start for me. A new awakening and a new beginning.
