Without a face vol.6

Tuesday 11 am. As I was sitting home appreciating my hot tea, blanket and Pinterest, I felt a sudden urge to create. I knew that my camera was not fully charged but I didn’t want to wait. Despite -22C (or something stupid like that) I bundled up and went outside. At first it seemed hard to spot anything to photograph because everything looked dead and dry but then I reminded myself that the whole point of me creating those images was to get close to the ground, to look for it and feel connected. I knew it was there because I felt a need to capture it. Whatever it was. As always, I didn’t even notice when I was lying on the ground, on a frozen puddle hearing cracking ice underneath me, just being taken away, pushing for the right angles, right lighting. Fighting with my cold shakes while using my manual focus, and abusing my camera when it had enough of that frigid temperature. I was looking for simple. The snow was a beautiful canvas, and I must admit that my recent passion for living a minimalist life had something to do with how I approached this edition. I am buried in articles, blogs and images that inspire me to get rid of things that I don’t need or use, to buy less and live simpler. I am cleaning, organizing and overhauling my home, and for the very first time it feels like I finally know what space I want to be in and what to surrounded by. I want to bring simplicity into every aspect of my life, and those images will always be that reminder.

P.S. As any of my previous “without a face” series, those images are available for sale. Contact me for details kathy@focca.ca
