I witness, I Observe, I am not, I am. contains images that are new work compiled of both viewing and contemplation. There is an inherent balance between the concrete representational nature that photography stems from and its continued divergence into a deconstruction and abstraction that leads to further looking and contemplations. By both isolating moments and assembling them in unison, investigation and engagement of discursive moments interweaves concerns of existence, racial melancholia, love, self-reflection, inherited trauma, moving past grief and how they address the viewing and photographing process. Utilizing this way of looking at existing dynamics and personal dispositions, this work addresses the importance within this contemporary moment to examine oneself and their surroundings in multiple facets.
