Series: Being: Anomaly
(Goal: 20 images)
Being: Anomaly explores the phenomenon in which an individual can be present within a natural, realistic realm, but also present and/or originate from a rather surrealistic or supernatural realm. The emphasis is on the mystery and discovering of the self within this dual-realm, or single-world where two realms have been united because of the individual’s intrinsic and distinctive being. Discovering the purpose of the self and understanding the self itself within such a world where two realms meet is the focus.
My first two attempts for this series shows experimentation with lighting and other photo manipulative qualities that aim to evoke the supernatural realm, also persevering to maintain reality; the depiction of this union in which the being ponders on about himself and this world in which he resides.
