Through most of my adult life I seem to feel as if I'm walking a thin line between relative greatness and total destruction...
Elements of despair, darkness, light, connections and curiosity.
The moments equal parts the photographer and the photograph.
The cycle, a driver and catalyst to escape some sort of ever building intense pressure, masked but not forgotten just re-framed.
Relationship and reasoning over the mind and emotion, moving parts at war with themselves.
A visual representation of a connection between the subconscious mind of the photographer and the photograph.
The thin line is the whole game...
"There's a realness about it all, an ability to connect with others for a second while taking a deep dive into yourself...
