Nothing's Coming Soon
Rarely do I venture out with a topic or subject in mind—I usually drive until I see something that compels me to stop, analyze, and possibly photograph for later perusal and consideration. Over time, the editing process yields a series of images that coalesce into a body of work with specific themes or preoccupations, in this case: ageing, mortality, and regret.
After editing and sequencing this work, I realized the Buddhist saying "Life is suffering" could encapsulate these pictures. I was visually documenting two traits all humans share: mortality and unrelenting desire. I do not intend for these images to be morbid or pessimistic, but rather hopeful by showing the beauty inherent in decay and the hard-won knowledge gained from experience.
