Dichotomy Series – Initial Test Image
Dichotomy Series – original test image
This image was the original test shot for my new series titled ‘Dichotomy’. I wanted to see if I could pull off the technical aspect of the project before I attempted to really showcase the concepts and ideas that I hope to communicate with the series.
The Word ‘Dichotomy’ is defined by Webster’s as: “a division into two especially mutually exclusive or contradictory groups or entities, something with seemingly contradictory qualities” This series is an attempt to communicate honestly and openly some of the inner struggles that I have observed – some of them warring within me and some of them witnessed in the lives of others.
Many of these images will have elements of the Christian faith, and in fact that is the birthplace of this project. Romans 7:14-25 communicates with much more clarity the inspiration of this idea. Verse 25 says, “So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me.” – The Apostle Paul
