“If I could hold on, just a little while longer.”
ARTIST STATEMENT: HOLD.
This is a series about my experience with motherhood, how this new journey has shaped my identity, and how anxiety has manifested itself in my everyday life.
I am a very nostalgic person and have always had a hard time letting go. I explore the way my home became a refuge and a prison
as well as the idea of time escaping us. I used long exposure times as well as manipulating the zoom of the lens as the image was being made.
The blurred effect is representative of how I feel like I am standing still while the world keeps moving around me.
The children are growing older and life is changing, yet I feel trapped by my anxiety of time moving too quickly.
