Great art flows from synchronicities and the development of this project came together as just that. We connected through a mutual admiration for artistic expression through unique visual and written mediums. In common, our desire for those who experience our work become the moment captured. When discussing Kathleen’s existing project, bridging photography and existing works of poetry, it was clear that this was an offering of manifested timing. This project will communicate how truly amazing New Mexico really is…in flavor and natural beauty. Both in transitioning lives, we seek to share our unique perspectives by creating a series of images and poetry capturing the character of New Mexico in enchanted time.
Our intention is to capture the essence of each location with a series of photographs and poetry composed exclusively for each photograph and location. Every image will depict a location within our state that is eye-catching and sometimes even other-worldly. Bringing together photography and poetry we have hand selected a group of locations that truly show and express the diversity and unique landscapes found in New Mexico, The Land of Enchantment. Walking in this series is to be saturated in the experience through the layered impressions in image and poetry. Words and images capture different essences of a place and communicate differently to viewers and readers. In addition, this undertaking will inspire people to visit these places, trying to capture the same or perhaps a different feeling than the artists experienced.
We will travel to our selected locations, each connecting with the energy of the area and creating our initial expressions. After we complete our location visit we will collaborate to choose the images from the location that will be included in the project and craft the final poem to accompany the piece. Each one will then be submitted for production creating work for display in various mediums. We are fundraising to cover the costs of travel, post-production and exhibition in a multi-media presentation of books, slideshows and a live exhibit.
