“Melancholy” Edition 1 of 1 Magic is the practice of manipulating natural or supernatural forces through the use of beliefs or actions. When it comes to religion and science, it’s common to think of them as separate from magic. During this process, I frequently lost track of time and I kept going back to the second verse of the Emerald Tablet. As I read the lines, I stopped for a moment to wonder about my perception of reality in the universe and if there is another me somewhere in a lost dimension thinking the same. As above, so below.

“Mirror Mirror” Edition 1 of 1 ‘Mirror Mirror’ is a candid street photograph that explores the relationship between color & composition while examining the poetic possibilities hidden within our surroundings. This photograph was a defining moment in my journey as a creative street photographer – A chance encounter with a harmonious arrangement of elements, tied together by rhythmic patterns of red & black woven throughout the frame. In the foreground, two mirrors reach skyward as unlikely flowers sprung from the concrete. The mirrors resemble shallow pools, reflecting hints of an alternate reality painted on the opposing wall. To the far left, the symbolic shape of a bird rhymes with both the woman’s stride in the center and the frame of the rightmost mirror. Between the mirrors, a woman takes her confident step, with triangulated glints of gold from head to toe, seemingly unaware of the role she plays in punctuating the poetry being written around her. For the mindful eye, the street is a playground.
