Artist Statement

Heaven and Earth is a reflection of my subconscious that expresses itself through my photography.  At the core is my internal struggle with the good and the bad within oneself and coming to terms with losing my religion.  I grew up in a very religious family and from adolescence onward my belief in the system slowly eroded. This naturally created its own set of conflicts which is mirrored in the work.
Furthermore, it’s also about life, death and suicide, themes that have occupied me throughout this three year project more than I’d like to admit.
The titles of the work are names of gods and kings of the old Assyrian empire which many elements are later rooted in Christianity. The ethereal effect is all done in camera using ambient light mixed with studio flash.

This body of work was exhibition at the 2016 Head On Photo Festival and Indian Photography Festival.
