Experimenting is about breaking out of formulas and simply trying something new without the weight of ego or expectation. DEATH OF THE WHITE SWAN is an example that opportunity and inspiration can elaborate out of nowhere with surreal effect.
Either because of the abstract veneer, or despite it, I would contend that these photos represent some of the most honest portraits I have taken. Though deeply personal in nature, they characteristically leave plenty of room for the viewer to imprint their own imagination and answer their own questions.
