Despair- Cheryl Slechta
16" x 18" x 1"
My photography is not representational but rather evocative of my feelings towards the subject I choose to photograph - my sheer awe and wonder of birds, the most ancient of beings unfettered by gravity. And yet, in this image, Despair, they are grounded and shrouded in fog. I feel their timelessness and grace but in this time of a global pandemic I project onto them my despair and isolation.
