On November 24th my mother's spirit passed from this world into this project in a very tangible sense. While an exploration of the spirit and the spiritual experience is at the heart of my work here, her death fills it with deeper meaning, fresher emotions.
When I began, the idea of shadows and reflections were a natural source of inspiration. What could be more fundamental to photography than these connected yet distinct elements of light? A blocking of light and a casting back of light. A blocking of love and casting back of love.
Shadow creating shape. Reflection creating illumination. Shadow creating experience. Reflection creating understanding of that experience.
