UNSETTLED

2013-2016

 

 

The windows mock me, always just in sight, showing me a world that I no longer feel I belong. I have become part of the furniture and my shadows have become the guests to my mad house. For three years I have suffered from Agoraphobia, creeping up slowly I began to become fearful of the outside world and the people that inhabit it. During 2013 I began documenting my life between these walls, capturing the ever-changing nature of the life outside my window and the moments

in-between. In the words of photographer Lauren E. Simonutti, 'I will either capture my ascension from madness to as much a level of sanity for which one of my composition could hope, or I will leave a document of it all, in the case that I should lose'. These photographs are more than therapeutic release, they mark time, they keep me grounded.
