A Lesson on Levitation: A Photographic Memoir

"Keep both feet planted on the ground." This phrase was uttered so many times as my mother fought cancer. Weightiness and the tie of gravity to the severity of the diagnosis became a stone around the ankles that kept me from hoping for the best. I choose to take a series of images of my twin sister and I levitation to break from that weighted feeling of unknowing what the furture held. I sought a way to release the tension and gravity of the situtation, and by photographing myself at the peak of a jump I was able to truely capture that moment of weightlessness and freedom. This is now more of an exercise of release and meditation for me as an artist and humanity.
