Stasis began as a typical Still Life Project. As I began editing the images, it transformed into something more mysterious , alien. It was almost as if I was documenting another planet or a world yet discovered.
In the end, I found myself back where I started, Still Life Photography. However, my interpretation of it was altogether different. I found life in something that has none.
