Consciousness for me is an unending, ever-changing flow of imagination that never ceases to grow; with and without a singular answer. With this visual (photographs, and text) body of work, I confront a thought with an opposing thought that generates an intellectual friction. I juxtapose two unrelated visuals, and supplement with abstruse phrases of text; that create a new narrative in the viewers’ minds triggering an internal dialogue. The central theme that binds all the images together, apart from formal aesthetic, is a contemplation of fundamental existential phenomenon.

Considering the time in which information bombardment and cognitive overload is the new normal, in the context of photography, we must question not only the topics it depicts, but also the role of photography, the photographer, and the photograph itself. We take too many things for granted too easily and as a photographer I attempt to slowdown the pace through this body of work, ‘Consciousness’.
