a walk into the wild...


nothing happened here. it is all an area of nothingness,
everything but the space....
a land of creation,

The romantic expression of the self-portrait as an art piece is very important. The self-portrait presented as an artist expression moves the voice of the personal expression to a pure form of philosophy. Art, in accordance to the Kantian System, allows us to connect to the world as it provides the link between the “fact of reason” within society, and our freedom of speech. The self-portrait can therefore effectively express the essence of our being, as it bounds together both the seer and the sensory world, and thus illuminate the indivisibility that exists within it, the flesh. The photographs within this the self portrait represent fragments, as they lay within the realm of beauty, caught within moments of the seers sense of self, their experiential being. The photograph maintains stillness, paralleling the voice of Rosemarie Waldrop’s Poem Blindsight, “for you beautiful ones, my thought will not change.” A moment may come and be lost, but the beauty, a.k.a. the flesh, captured within a photograph, although maintains still, continuingly evolves through the beauty created from a wild meaning.
