A picture paints a billion light years.
A rocky start to a stellar finish, this journey turned out to be a hell of a lot more rewarding than anticipated. Looking up, I mean really looking up, into our very existence, into hundreds of thousands of light years, of billions of stars, planets and the absolute unknown isn’t just breathtaking, it’s mind altering. The time I’ve spent alone with the immensity of the entire universe glistening down on me, a grain of salt in the ocean of existence, has been a philosophically intense experience. It has opened my eyes and mind to my own insignificance in time and space, I’m forced to see beyond the small space we inhibit, I am both curious but sure, perplexed yet clear as I gaze upon infinity and the things we can never know. This growing body of work is to leave you with a mix of conflicting feelings and thoughts about everything you know and are yet to discover. This is for my father, a philosopher. This has been the most rewarding and exciting project I have ever done. I will most definitely be chasing the Milky Way for a long time to come, for I have found a new obsession. When I first set out to shoot, I had no idea how amazing capturing my first shot of the Milky Way in full bloom would actually feel. It was a monumental effort that left me shining from the inside out. It was a long, hard and exhausting process that proved to be more than worth it. I experienced some incredibly beautiful moments with the galaxy overhead, I spoke to my father, I opened my mind, questioned everything and I just, was.
