True North

“True North” is an anti-text message, 180 degrees from Cartier Bresson’s definitive moment. It is set outside the center, in the stillness and solitude of a landscape where one can actually receive time.

These photographs track the shifting snowdrifts and blue of long, drawn-out dusk, or the flat light of day in deepest winter, Finland. Photographed in January with sun closest to the horizon, this work led to heightened attention through stillness, a focus on increments of time, and ideas about meditation, silence, and awareness.

Like the practice of meditation, these photographs ask the simple question, “What happens when you pay attention?”

This work comprises prints of varying sizes, as well as a book of photographs taken from my window over the month, entitled, "Nothing Will Ever be the Same Again."
