Influenced by the concept of Yin and Yang, I explore how seemingly contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent on each other. Focusing primarily on the duality of light and dark, I examine memories and feelings, extracting the positive and negative qualities of each experience.
My portrait series, Endless Night, is a visual manifestation of depression. The somber quality and lack of color is symbolic of the bleak outlook one experiences while in this dreadful state. However, there is no darkness without light and no light without darkness. Creating this series was a therapeutic experience that helped me to cope with my own struggles.
