Every photograph is a certificate of presence
— Roland Barthes, ‘Camera Lucida’
We live in an age of extremes, but that is the essential dichotomy of modern Western life. Too much and yet, at the same time, not enough. It’s important, I feel, to seek a focus that grounds and connect us to our surroundings; we all achieve it in different ways, and as an artist, I sometimes find it in a hidden splash of color, in the vivid blink of the eye.
