Description

Mental Stills is an exploitation of subconscious reactions documented with black and white film photographs. Using my own mind as the subject of this series I practiced automatized creation by reacting to my environments, given objects and tools upon initial response. The resulting photographs revealed reflections of my mental and emotional states that had not been acknowledged prior to the time the photograph was taken. Mental Stills exhibited at the Emy Frentz Gallery this recent October, 2015. This series of film photographs was displayed in chronological order, emphasizing a progression of change in mental states throughout the two- year duration of this project.
