Melancholic Temperament In Troubling Times

This series started from a place of my unknowing. 

But, as time goes by and I continue to work, I am beginning to understand.  These micro-environments I have been creating and photographing are my attempt to gain control in an out-of-control situation.  Melancholic Temperament in Troubling Times is my effort at unraveling a deep confusion and feelings of loss triggered by the pandemic   The photographs reflect living life with a dread of what is yet to come paired with the recognition that life will never be the same.  The unknowing I am experiencing isn't unique to me but a omnipotent presence that rules all of us.  We live in a world where we can't say, with any certainty, what tomorrow will bring.  Feelings of loss, sadness, fear, and loneliness have become part of our daily lives.  Living under the weight of not knowing has become our norm.  This ongoing series mirrors the wounding of hope and loss of the belief that the worst is behind us.
