Don’t Fall

Photographed in the months following my mother’s death, this series visually deviates from the airy nature in much of my work. Standing in a forest can feel lonely. The light seems far away and shadows engross you, if you allow them. It’s easy to become entangled in the detail of the shadows and even easier to descend deeper into them, making surreal the reality around you.

In these times I always remind myself to stay grounded. This series is a message to myself, don’t fall.

I translated this notion photographically by allowing the lens to physically fall over the period of a long exposure, as if out of control, yet at the same time guided by the constraints of the camera design.
