It was so hard to pick just three of my favorite works from 2017. I went with three different settings, all of which have meaning to me.
In my images, I want to convey a sense of visceral presence. I am not concerned with the narrative relating to the before and after. I am concerned with the present moment. I want the viewer to experience a momentary ineffable catharsis, forgetting their past, while simultaneously not projecting themselves into an uncertain future. I want the viewer to be hopeful in the present struggle.
