Oasis

This project emerged from the realities of struggling with an end of a relationship that was salted dry through infidelity. After a complicated breakup, I found myself on a trip in the desert with a couple that was newly in love. Out of their affection, the arid desert, and my own desolate struggle, I found inspiration to create “Oasis”, a body of work that speaks about the lightness and darkness of love.

 

The environments in these images were chosen mindfully and embody multiple meanings. When traveling through the desert, I became aware of the many optical illusions it can present to the naked eye. The desert background became the symbol of the seemingly perfect qualities a lover holds when first falling in love. The backgrounds surrounding the lovers are beautiful, yet dark, and are sometimes de-saturated. This alludes to how magical things look from a distance when love is first at hand, overlooking flaws in a burgeoning relationship. The otherworldly aesthetic of the landscapes propose the chosen isolation from the rest the world that lovers feel when together. There’s a quiet here; all the noise of the outside world is silenced when new lovers are unified. Their affection is simultaneously soft and clenching, emulating lightness and darkness coexisting in the series.
