As I reflect on the opening of “Ravishing” I am struck by the synergy and harmony I felt with and from the other photographers. We are all exploring emotions and identity through our images. We strive to understand ourselves, others, and our place in many landscapes. These landscapes of our lives, from our homes to the cities we inhabit to the internal mappings of our mind are all navigated at times through the compass of our art. There are moments when we feel we may be aimlessly drifting but we are in fact being pulled by a strong current in the direction of our dreams.
