Communicating with Shadows

Opening a door to mysterious lucidity…
colliding with caves dug by souls in search of obscurity
souls who spent lifetimes to unlearn what is tangible to discover magic,
walking through walls, to communicate with shadows,
accepting the unusual, and holding dear its seldomness
for we will all open our eyes.

—Dylan Kane Landin

As a child I was fascinated with the magic of the camera. There was something mystical, almost holy, about a piece of time captured that could be viewed again and again and that could evoke memories and emotions so intensely.

I use the camera intuitively, not always sure of my intention. Of every image I make there is a place that looks like this in the deepest part of me … Sometimes I find myself there unexpectedly and the going there can only be reached without thought.

These photographs are my inner experience made indelibly visible. It's discovering magic, accepting the unusual, communicating with shadows … finding myself in that place on the verge of waking, where we are "more vulnerable and open to realities of the spirit."

If an image can move you, affect you, even disturb you, then it's caused some aliveness, some shift in your cosmos, a stirring in your soul. I am forever seeking that elusive awakening. My images are my voice, sometimes a whisper, sometimes not.
