Photographing in a time of pandemic. Surrounded by uncertainty, I sought comfort from new rituals using ancient magic. In these rites of photographic evocation, I explore objects and materials attributed with the power to protect the body, the house, and the family, from invisible dangers.
I suspended a veil in front of the objects as a visual metaphor for the mysterious division which separates the esoteric realm beyond the actual. As the veil moves, shields, and interacts with the light, an ethereal impression of the objects is created. The real and the imagined become blurred, giving a benign sense of solace.
