mysteries. 2016 & 2017.

Darkness touches something very young and primal in us. We are attuned to love the light, but darkness makes us uneasy because it leaves us with unanswered questions. We can’t see what’s there, so there is some element of mystery. It conceals what is hiding, perhaps something beautiful in the shadows, perhaps something threatening. We don’t really know.

I often wonder, if we could completely empty our minds of what we know of the world and of right and wrong, would we find darkness more a comfort than a threat?

Thank you for visiting, I know my blog has been extremely neglected. I’ve not been doing a lot of shooting this year, but I have been sharing my work regularly. After my 365 project ended in December, I’ve been uploading occasionally to Just A Little Patience, a blog I am sharing with Johnny – but most of my work has been shared on my new Rebecca Lily Instagram account. If you are on Instagram, you’re welcome to follow me there as well.

I’ve been working on a personal project for the past 2.5 months – a daily photo journal for the year 2016. It has truly had a profound impact on me, both personally and artistically. I am learning so much and connecting to my photography in ways I hadn’t before.

I’ve shared above my 4 favorite photographs from the project so far. If you’re interested to follow along, it’s here.
