A very interesting theme: A turning point in ones life.
When a person is close to half a century in their lives--there are several pivotal points..
Moments that tailgate your fast forward.
Moments that decide for you---what your life outcome will be.
When we are young--we assume a measure of invincibility...we can play Russian roulette and that there bullet is sure to miss us.
We move forward---wiser and hope the decisions we make in haste--will not follow through with repercussions; never mind, life altering realities.
Yes...when we are young.
Having faced up to various forms of loss in my life--I discovered photography as a means of releasing what words failed to comfort bring in closure.
Its this series ---that afforded me a constant companion in projecting my inner world--and finding a platform of more gentler loft.
The photos taken through a window reflection were accidental discoveries while coming home from shopping.
Holding my groceries bags and coffee in toll--I caught sight of my reflection.
Taking the risk of spoiling food and cold coffee--
I immediately began to contort by body, so as to use these reflections as a form of expression...to use photography as the brush on my canvas,,,,discovering it as a medium for my heART.
