A story of a personal month-long journey in the South of India.
The black and white images in “Pothos” were shot on film and worked through for one year. The word “pothos” means, literally, “desire, longing, yearning”. This series of images is a study on heartache. It began out of a sum of impressions which accumulated into each image. The human figure is combined with objects from the natural world to create a hybrid reality in which instinct and emotion unite. Each photograph is unearthed from the subconscious of existential longing and collective sorrow to attain beauty and understanding, and therefore grace.
Without Four Walls
In 2013, I worked on a 3-month project recording those in New York City with no homes, photographing them while they are sleeping. Without Four Walls is shot with purposeful distance, capturing these people in their chosen space, channeling the subject’s vulnerability generated from chosen or non-intentional isolation.
