The Reality of Existence
The Reality of Existence is an accumulation of work I made intermittently over the past five years. At the time, most of the images were made singularly without a larger narrative. It wasn’t until reexamining them did I realize that throughout this period the work I created held a common theme. During this transitory time in my life, I was thinking about the impermanence of humans and what we leave behind. What was created is a series that deals with the fragility of our species and the human condition. I was drawn to scenes that feel absurd but are not intended to be and become a mundane part of everyday life. These portraits and deserted landscapes draw our attention to the inevitable effects of time and natural cycles.
