Our photographic narratives take inspiration from the landscape and architecture of the Southern United States and draw from our respective lives and cultures, as well as from stories whispered to us at shooting locations. These portraits of self and of each other depict aspects of the enigmatic searching woman that all womankind contains.

By reacting to setting, environment, and each other, our responses become performance-like, similar to a choreographed piece. As mature women, we are well in tune to ourselves (inwardly and outwardly), to the past and history, and perceptive of the energy in spaces and surroundings.

The formal qualities of the images we generate invite the viewer into an aesthetic experience. The figures, objects, and settings in them suggest stories that are symbolically suggestive. Water can often be a symbol of change and of higher wisdom. A mirror or a reflection may hint at a character’s “other” entity. Moss could stand for the passage of time, and ivy attachment or eternity.

By reducing the specificity of place and time, our tableaus explore dreams, fear, and memory. Intentionally left open-ended and indeterminate, the results are ethereal, otherworldly, and fairytale-like — seemingly “pretty pictures,” but intended to evoke a disturbing tension between the beautiful and what lies beneath the beautiful.
