Unlike work I’ve made before, “Dreams and Other Things” is a confluence of photographs, filters, colors, drawings, and my imagination. These landscapes have become places of refuge - dreamy escapes to which I can retreat from the sadness, anxiety, divisiveness, and uncertainty that began permeating our daily lives in 2016.
By manipulating them, something I’ve never done with my photographs before, I feel as if I have more control over what’s happening around me. They also serve to remind me it's critical to maintain a sense of hope, which, as defined by human rights activist Desmond Tutu, is simply “the ability to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.”
This work is no longer available on metal. Prints on paper only.
