I imagine there are times when people have this urge to scream but choose to contain the matter within themselves. There was one night where I sat on a park bench not far from my home. Despite the urban location I allowed myself to yell.
This set occurs in the early morning. From the light that fills the cool background, to the shots of soft colors, there a sense of simply freedom. The expanse of the concrete architecture echos the notion of letting go..yet at the same time.. embracing. Through several gestures, honesty begins a relationship with the surroundings. Pigeons come and go as they please and my breath takes on a spirit of its own. However there is a tension felt through the sounds of the unaware overhead traffic. I have been absolved.
