“It is for the same reason that I am at the heart of the visible that I am far from it: because it has thickness and thereby is naturally destined to be seen by a body.“   

Merleau Ponty, The Intertwining - The Chiasm

 

It is our horizon of experience and our understanding of our own bodies which enables us to interpret the world around us. Meaning is found when we define our experiences through language. But some things cannot be described or explained through the use of words. To me photography provides a way of simultaneously creating meaning, narrating my life, and asking questions I cannot answer.
