These photographs are reflections on mortality and spiritual existence. The idea of a higher power is defined simply as a force that is greater than oneself. The term originates from Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in the 1930s. This work is a recent dialogue with rituals and fears associated with death that are experienced on a larger scale in society. It is not meant to define specific beliefs but to take a closer look at collective actions and imagery that have become identifiable with mortality. Sources of inspiration include post-mortem photography, Père Lachaise Cemetery, and Tarot divination. This selection of work also brings to surface personal fears associated with illness, addiction and death. Confronting these trepidations works as a form of cathartic relief and elevates the practice of art to a higher power in its own right.
