MORNING LIGHT

The combination of images and text in the series Morning Light is the result of a personal exploration of heartbreak. The images, taken with a smartphone and edited using an aesthetic bounded by social media, document the ephemeral beauty of light within the home as a metaphor for the intimacy and immediacy of emotions and thoughts that occur throughout the course of a heartbreak. The emotionally raw text, derived from personal reflections, is handwritten below the image providing the overall composition a resemblance to a Polaroid, further suggesting the idea of immediacy.
