horizons of the self
These photographs are an intimate collection of self portraits that reflect an inner state of being through external representation. In the words of Aldous Huxley - “In spite of language, in spite of intelligence and intuition and sympathy, one can never really communicate anything to anybody. The essential substance of every thought and feeling remains incommunicable, locked up in the impenetrable strong-room of the individual soul and body. Our life is a sentence of perpetual solitary confinement.” These photographs are reflections and documentations of the transcendental states of the psyche, and of womanhood. a place between antinomy and internal conflict. They draw upon the intrinsic desire to question, interpret and explore, and muse over the preservation of emotional antinomy, self experience, absence, and the consistent allegorical relationship between the body and its immediate environment.
