These photographs are from a larger group of images that depict my notions of life, death, and what it means to be human. In them people eat, sleep, breath, think, age – all the while envelop in lightness or darkness – both spaces of transformation. Their expressions and gestures suggest a sense of charged possibilities. What is revealed is the transience and mortality of the person or object depicted.
