"Emptiness" : Artwork by Eric Christopher Jackson

Isolation

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 experience, 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 so many dealing with the type of depression that originates from isolation. When you extend 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 people, it’s hard to trust them and eventually extend 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.
