The photographic image, as a metaphor, is an ever present force that shapes this body of work and adds multiple layers of meaning.
Major, political influences were to reshape the life of a generation of people. It was the end of an era and their way of life was to change forever.
The act of making and viewing photographs can give us a window into new ways of perceiving the world. The photograph is nebulous and mesmeric and has a quality that is deeper and more profound than just the object that it appears to be - there is looking and there is seeing. Images evoke dreams, memories and contemplative reflections on life as we know it.
Photography and Art tap into the other worldly and the mysterious in life. Art searches for a deeper truth beyond surface reality and takes us on a symbolic journey into new experiences. It can deeply enrich our lives and bring ephemeral moments of private meaning into being. Art and creativity are a tool for contemplating life and understanding who we are. It is all things to all people.
