Meditation #18

My Vision of Peace
This piece is from a series of photographs entitled Meditations which deals with my own personal struggles for both peace within and peace within the world that I find myself. The world can never know true peace until individuals are willing to confront themselves and their own inner turmoil in an effort to ease their subconscious and attain happiness in their conscious lives.


Medium
Meditation #18, like all of the photographs in the series, are equal parts performance art and photography as they are nude, single exposure self-portraits with shutter speeds ranging from thirty seconds to two minutes shot in the studio with a large format camera. The images are hand printed, selenium toned, gelatin silver prints.

Beautiful photo and thoughts behind it. I too believe that world peace begins with inner peace. Thanks for joining us here.

i like the sort of double image/echo that is going on here.

When I was a young boy attending catholic school I would stare at Jesus on the cross while waiting for communion. The lights that lit up the crucifix produced shadows and imagery that are reminiscent of this image. I believe the light to reveal the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
peace and light~

could not evoke more stillness and movement in the viewer. balance is one on my personal struggles and although this is a self-portrait - i find it strangely easy to feel myself in this photograph. congrats on the inspiration award! : )
