SERIES | Stasis

  • INTRODUCTION
     
    Stasis began as a typical Still Life project. As I began editing the later images, it transformed into something more mysterious, alien. It was almost as if I was documenting another planet or a world yet discovered.
     
    In the end, I found myself back at where I started, still life photography. However, my interpretation of it was altogether different. I found life in something that has none.
  • SOUVENIR
    Examine the details. Intense light. Mid-air.
    Frozen in time. Captured for eternity.
     
     
     
  • APPROACH
    Slivers of light on the horizon. Steel reflections throughout.
    The closer I get, the more I wonder where I am.

     
     
     
  • SUSPENDED
    A world, frozen, still. 
    Suspended
    on nothing, but air.
     
    The series began here, the first edited photograph.
    A mixture of inspirations from high-end fashion to
    gritty contemporary art contributed to the work.

     
     
     
  • ENCOMPASS
    The sky, the tree, the water, everything absorbed 
    by
    the creature that never consumed enough. And the
    beauty that resulted from this tragedy.
     
     
     
  • FLEE
    In haste, they flee, from an incoming intruder
    aware of their hidden lair.
     
     
     
  • ON THE SURFACE
    I could travel to another world to find 
    the most unimaginable
    scene yet discovered. Instead, I found one here,
    on Earth.
     
     
     
  • SECOND
    Clones? Twins?
    Siblings.
     
     
     
  • ENCASED
    A picture inside of a picture. A world inside of a world.
    Perhaps a moon, in a way that I have never seen it
    before. A wonder in the palm of my hand.
     
     
     
  • BIRTH
    Tiny. Small. Unaware. Cute and beginning 
    to grow
    into its own. A glimpse of new life.
     
     
     
  • COCOON
    Silence. Interconnected.
    Not alone.
     
     
     
  • PEARLS
    Ignoring all else, focusing on the one clear trail
    that leads everywhere I need to go.
     
     
     
  • LAIR
    Light fades to shadows and splashes 
    of
    color. The depths of the lair.
