Encountering the shadow

IMG5929BW-23 copy

 Seldom seen,

often denied;

Her heart is tied to the shadow moon.

Image

 She veils herself as

"the other",

     Image

and so she would have us believe,

Image

But upon deeper scrying

she is revealed as,

"the self".

Image

Swimming in the depths of illusion,

she brings truth to those willing to bring her  light.

"I am a forest, and a night of dark trees:
but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses."

- Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

This is a series of photographs I took of the photographer, Leah Rose Kolakowski.

Shot on expired 35mm film.
