COLLECTION NYCTOPHILIA

Welcome to NYCTOPHILIA! 

(n.) An attraction to the night; finding comfort in the darkness.

 

The color black, the nightfall,... for me these are not morbid: they are an opportunity, a state in which I feel comfortable.  As night falls, my creativity rises. The darkness brings me inner peace, enabling my creativity to reveal itself. When everything falls silent, night revives me, stimulating my senses: I breathe deeply, my ideas flow without hindrance. In this flow, this comfortable state of mind, I discover myself again.

Photography as a weapon against time. A means to capture the moment. Precious moments in time that could so easily be forgotten. The shutter button becomes a pause button, arresting time. 

This is my goal. I achieve it only when my images provoke emotions and transport the viewer to a whole new world of desire. Our desires stream from our dreams and our imaginations.

Just let go . . . and go with my flow.

#1 MULTIPOTENTIALITE

The first print of the collection Nyctophilia.

A mangrove swamp, intricate in its density, can symbolize the range of possibilities that entered into your self-realization. Society constantly intrudes in our lives with powerful messages, obstructing and confusing us as it conditions our natures. Are we becoming what we once aspired to be? Are we our ideal selves?

 

We desire. We dream. We attempt. We DO! Because we dare to fight. We fight for the enlightening moments that give us what we need to keep going. We are always looking ahead—always looking for that perfect instant.

#2 GROW

The urge to proceed. The compelling desire to keep on. The wisdom to know that there is so much more than what we know: so much beyond the material, the tangible. Owning the power of will, we must use that power to attain what we desire.

#3 FLOATING

Though powerful conditioning thoughts have crossed my path, they have not confused or obstructed me. Instead, my strength has grown, and my process has blossomed, enabling me to go further than I could ever have imagined.  I became who I once wanted to be—who I still want to be.

#4 BEHIND THE SCENES

Every color has its own way of influencing us.  I could drown in the color green!  Next to black, it is the color I'm most attracted to: green, the color of spring, when all the plants are coming to life!  

Nature is more than what meets the eye: plants absorb and radiate energy, helping me to understand myself.  Green gives me self-confidence and a sense of balance, and it brings with it the calmness that I so often need for my chaotic thoughts.  Green is like malachite, inspiring growth and clearing away the loose baggage of the mind.  Once allied with nature, you'll find yourself, as I do, open to risk-taking and to change.
