“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
― Ansel Adams (the real king of pop)
My romance with photography began rather unromantically, borne more of necessity than artistic endeavor. The victim of a rapidly deteriorating memory, I found unspeakable joy in trapping memories like fireflies, immortalizing my life frame by frame. What began as a girlish crush quickly deepened and I found myself falling in love upside down, every day and all over again, often losing myself in the rapturous beauty of my own memories. When the rest of the world fades into a dull glow, I feel left to capture the delicacy of detail and life’s most fragile moments.
Though I reflect on the things I’ve captured with warmth, I remain driven to see more. A denizen of a world as beautiful as she is mad, a wild current of people, places, faces and gazes races through my mind's eye. It feeds my desire to peel back the curtain and reveal the stories she is brimming with.
I will continue to take photos and film until there’s no more desire for images, and then I will take to silence instead and fill the jar with fireflies for myself.
Yours for the revolution,
