The Dark Mind
Modern Pictorial Photography by L. J. Blanksma
Hidden behind the bark and among the worn crevices of dead trees, lies stories of the imagination.
The pictorials in this series are taken from pieces of driftwood - the dense bones of the forest laid to rest on the beaches of the Pacific Northwest.
Heavily manipulated through the use of light and shadow, an extraction process takes place. A world of imaginary characters comes to life by influencing patterns and discarding the irrelevant. Open to interpretation, each work is an attempt to balance the matrix - those things we see when in fact they are something completely different.
