We Are Not Made of Wood

The form is neither rising or falling, but is awkwardly in-between. Imbued with experiences of losing control, creating parallels between themes of fragility and confidence. This series is an attempt to capture the strength it takes to be helpless and out of control. The tenacity of one’s will is often overshadowed by their circumstance. The photographs stylistically pull from master post impressionist painters. The soft focus underscores the abstract quality relaying on movement and form similarly to Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings. His paintings were not only about the subject, but more importantly, the mood he was looking to create.

The series was awarded the Contemporary Talent 2012, Photography Category by the François Schneider Foundation.
