Loss, I believe it is an emotion we are taught to deal and power through, rather than appreciate and nurture in its very honest beauty. In photographing the spaces formerly occupied by my late grandfather Joseph Morello, I attempt to extract the emptiness and void associated with loss. I had no choice but to deal with two losses in a short space of time. I feel our social media driven world has created a new, less authentic expression of emotion through emojis. My work intends to return to the spaces that often define us with the most authenticity - our personal living space - and express the rawest emotion shared by us all at various points in our lives.
Author: I am a thoughtful visual artist who pays great attention to detail. In my photography, my natural instinct is to document and produce work, which tells human stories. I am interested in the concept of transition within time and space; transition from day to nigh, young to old, healthy to ailing. I call to question the recurring time and space we occupy, the cyclical nature of our very individual lifespans. Within this, I look to evoke the emotion of the people and places I photograph, making the psychological and emotive element of my subjects the integral aspect or intention of my work.
I attempt to comprehend how we hold onto personal memories by capturing them photographically and through narrative conversations I have with my subjects. What makes me think deeper about this is how we individually deal with situations as each decision we take takes us through different journeys, yet we all follow a similar cycle during our lives.
My current research and project focused on loss, death specifically, as I believe it is an emotion we are taught to deal and power through, rather than appreciate and nurture in its very honest beauty. In photographing the spaces formerly occupied by people who have passed, I attempt to extract the emptiness and void associated with loss.
