"I am interested in expressing something which is built up from within rather than extracted from without." - Ansel Adams
Reflections of Solitude are self portraits. Works in being. Presence-ing self. Being a picture. Seeing and being seen. Feeling being seen. The inner and the outer selves together. Looking inside looking outside.
Self portraits are about signification and meaning, personification of form and space, and individual person presence. They are artifacts of a life.
I will not always look this way but I will always feel this way.
Reflections of Solitude images created alone or with the assistance of women assistants between 2003 and 2015. The pictures are not arranged or meant to be viewed as a chronology.
