“Fright never injures anyone. What injures the spirit is having someone always on your back, beating you, telling you what to do and what not to do.”
Carlos Castaneda

Journey to Ixtlan

Wandering

n

These images were taken during a walk I took in fields near our house. In a way it was a new beginning because I had not wandered out with the camera in hand for a long time – I still don’t. I usually feel lost in the world with the camera in hand. This time I went out to challenge that concept.

This occured  shortly after an intense three month project with Shahar ended. I was carrying with me a question, which comes up often, about my relationship to the people and work I encounter when in Shahar’s bubble (which is where I have spent most of the last two years). My first impression is that I am some kind of a parasite. What can I do with the camera without other performers doing their work? What images would exist for me?

With this in mind I went for a walk. These images are technically extreme, they were taken in low-light conditions, in which I pushed the camera into extreme settings and then (shortly after I arrived home) used a heavy hand in post processing. I felt I was fighting something.
