Shadow of Life

DSC05300-01The world is so ugly yet so beautiful. It is remarkable the things we can create but sometimes the artist is more flawed than the work they have created.

The world I see is darker than most but it has beautiful light from within. My art should represent that, as I often have forgotten that I will never forget the meaning behind what I create nor why I create in the first place. I love film noir and noh plays. I love dark visuals that reveal beauty. I settle with not having living models and capture the things the world ignores. I want to show that just because something is dark, doesn’t mean it doesn’t have light within it.

This shot is a return to what I experimented with in the beginning of this journey. I am shy/anti-social but I am breaking out to capture new subjects including live models. The floor in this building is highly reflective and the entire interior sees a lot of quality light. I wanted to capture both aspects as well as the pillars and I got my chance on a early day when no one was around. It was a trial and error process that I am proud of myself for.
