The photographs in the series “Discarded Dreams” explore the human connection to the world in which we live. The imagery in the final photographs includes a digital blending of both landscape and medical scans. Medical imagery represents information required to see what cannot be seen on the surface. In contrast, photographic images of landscape provide a different type of information: that which is familiar, identifiable and exposed at the surface.
What if imagery that can’t normally be seen by the human eye is suddenly brought to light? How would these new visual truths affect life, as we know it? Through symbolism and metaphor, this dichotomy (that which is seem on the surface in contrast to that which is hidden) is revealed. Our planet as we once knew it is now bathed in a light filled with wonderment and phenomena. Through these photographs, I attempt to portray a visually altered world, leaving the viewer filled equally with awe, strength and vulnerability.
