Departure, an ethereal study in time and space, reveals a sense of freedom and anonymity within transparent child-like figures as they meld with their surroundings.
This series began as a need to step outside of myself, to depart, photographically from my comfort zone. I’ve ‘abandoned' Photoshop—no digital collaging. It is just the camera, the subject, and a watchful eye for just the right conditions. These unaltered images move closer toward the essence of photography—capturing light and movement in a single instant.
The un-tethered, weightless figures isolate a random moment in time. They capture the light and color of their environment, becoming one with the air, earth, or water. As they bond with their surroundings, they randomly interact with one another, and form a relationship with the viewer. Printed on metal, these images have no bounds and seemingly float off the wall themselves.
