Apparently I have an obsession with basements and I guess it doesn't matter what they look like something about all that concrete surrounding you the imagination can make lots of things up. This particular series addresses the mind set of creating something from nothing in the basement and perhaps a struggle of my mind to disinherit my crazy thoughts. I also love shooting self portraits one because I am my most accessible model and I don't have to direct anyone else to get the emotion I am looking for. I am finding that this is a very intimate reflective session for me and I can come back to these photos and remember what I was thinking and feeling kind of like a visual journal.
This is a poem that goes with this photo:
When they come you'll be prepared
pesky though they are
pay them no mind and you will go far
I am constantly seeking out inspiring basements and hope to continue shooting many more basement settings.
Thanks for looking!
