Modern Mythology
Mythologie Moderne
September 2014

Photography is, first and foremost, the art of observation. On sabbatical, away from the world previously known to me, these photos are part of a collection from my time in Paris. Only beginning to learn French after arriving in France, the language barrier is truly something to be overcome for communication is not only verbal. Especially at this moment in time, the power of observation far more precedes my verbal communication. This has given me time to think in a kind of silence about what I want to say about my photography, but even more so what I want to say about myself. This is my current rediscovery of archetypal elements in classical Greek and Roman mythology. For it has always been a belief of mine that the everyday people are what legends are made of.
