For Tanit

Ibiza, Balearic Islands

 

"As we degenerate, the contrast between us and our house [nature] is more evident. We do not understand the notes of the birds. The fox and the deer run away from us; the bear and tiger rend us". R. W. E.
 

The island's Nature, embodied by the benevolent but daunting goddess Tanit, is perceived in all its mightiness. It awakens a

certain reverence and awe. Its inaccessible yet embracing Beauty tosses our senses and makes us wonder if they are "truly adjusted to each other". 
 

I felt observed, questioned. Were my inward and outward senses communicating reciprocally? 

While I was trying to answer this question, I began portraying the Island. These photographs are my tribute to Tanit, for having stirred my conscience and prompted an inner revolution.
