"Where are you left if you miss the message the blue nights bring?" - Joan Didion, Blue Nights
In this series of photographs, staged and lit, I tried to capture this feeling of weightlessness. I started this series after coming to the realization that everything we see, read, and "consume", informs our work, from the walks we go on to the novels we read. Here, I attempt to corral of my subconscious influences and produce photographs in a way that is self-aware and directly derivative of certain writings. They are heavily inspired by the works of Joan Didion, the short stories of J.D. Salinger, and the poetry of William Carlos Williams. There are the blues of dismay and the golden hues of hope, that influence and change each other.
