CALM: Can Anything Live Me? Was a question that manifested from a conversation, post photoshoot, with the subject in the work. A phrase derived from the idea that "it" is such a good thing, that no one can ever really have enough. That there is a security in the notion that what was offered, was so worth it, there was no truly being over it. To own that both in mind and permission, left confidence and serenity in the possessor.

Graphite on Bristol

Something about the subject spoke to something a little sad. Something about her spoke to something a little exuberant. It was as if in that moment, she needed to be everything I needed to get to this. She spoke whimsically about the sad times, and spoke sullenly about moments she held fondly. The juxtaposition influenced this idea that, though down, she may never be out. In the event that she is without, she is never alone, that prospect is what CALM grew from. So in leading up to CALM, you have calming, or Calming I, Calming II, and Calming III.
