Isolation (2013)

Introduction

The world is passing by and this individual feels separated from it all. However, this person has made a conscious decision to be isolated because of negative past experiences. Hence, the all black outfit, hood over his head, sort of staring into space oblivious to the activity going on around him.

I feel like this is an important subject to address because I’ve heard about so many dealing with the type of depression that originates from isolation.

When you extent your heart to certain people and it’s bruised or broken in the process, a natural tendency is to protect yourself. A wall is put in place. When you meet new people, it’s hard to trust them and eventually extent your heart towards them.

It’s been a challenge to put these words into visual scenes, but lighting is important to me. I decided to photograph all the scenes at night because the individual is essentially hiding from everyone.

Perhaps, including himself..

Hopeless | Artwork by Eric Christopher Jackson

HOPELESS

Is it a pit of despair
A restless hope
Unspoken dreams
That are broken
And have left me
Hopeless

 


Walk | Artwork by Eric Christopher Jackson

WALK

Why keep going
Why keep walking
Why keep dreaming
Because I have
No place else
To go
