Sum of Our Fears

 

Sum of Our Fears

Sum of Our Fears is a fine art project that explores fear. Each image is based on a particular fear I have gathered from people I know and interview. Because of my love for horror films, I have chosen a “film still” format that brings a cinematic aesthetic to the series. Each image is constructed in a near-realistic yet exaggerated way much as you would expect from a scene in a scary movie.

I invite you to relate to these scenes and connect them with your own personal fears, realizing a commonality between yourself and the anxieties and terrors of others, understanding that ultimately we are all vulnerable, mortal, and flawed in our own ways.
