Chosen for the cover of an International Literary Magazine in 2014.
As if in a dream, a woman runs through a dark mysterious forest towards a beckoning light. Impressionist style of photography.
The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness. ~ John Muir
If there is one central tenet held by Symbolist artists, it is that life is fundamentally mysterious, and the artist must respect and preserve this mystery. Thus they insisted on suggestion rather than explicitness, symbols or equivalents rather than description, in both painting and poetry. Choosing music as their model, Symbolists found the creation of a mood to be as important as the transmission of information, and sought to engage the entire mind and personality of the viewer by appealing to the viewer�s emotions and unconscious mind as well as intellect. The recognition that there was a major portion of mental activity that is closed to the conscious mind confirmed the Symbolists conviction that there was more to life than could be explained through positivist science.
This is a combination of two of my photographs with 3 textures added.
