With this series, I am exploring the artistic juxtaposition of visual and written expression. My inspiration is the writings of 19th and 20th century poets and writers. I am portraying my interpretation of the verses which touch upon the universal themes of nature, dreams, identity, loneliness, and spirituality. The photographs create a moment of shared recognition between the author, the viewer and myself.

"Both adrift on the miraculous stream."A glint of her hair or a flash of her shoulder, that is the most I can boast to have seen.A something in a summer's day.Accomplished maid...who dost not only dance in time, but steal, like time, along.And at her feet there dreams a quiet lake.And fasten the clothes to dry, then out in the free fresh air they swing, under the sunny sky.And she placed a wreath in her hair.Four spirits,sweet and innocent as they...gaze on the world...I heard the mermaids singing each to each.Lady of the LakeNature's plan is wondrous kind could we understand her mind.Nonsense.  Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't.   Mad HatterOne grim shadow creeping ever nigh: and this was life.Shadowy, yet unbroken is a symbol and a token.Tears and loss and broken dreams may find your heart at dusk.The brilliant revolving circle of the ferris wheel was like a trembling mirror.The swimmers wrestled...until the morning sun.Traveled beyond the shore of space, the eternal spirits in freedom go.When at eve I rise from tea, day dawns behond the Atlantic Sea.z gallery shot
