Before you know // before you now // before your next step // before the last breath - or the first // before thirst makes you choose water // before the (s)laughter // before you think about the cost // before all is lost // before the fall // before the overhaul of everything you once held dear // before the fear sets in // before lose or win // before the answer makes himself apparent // before you wish you hadn't // before you can // before any kind of concrete plan // before the calm that comes with certainty -  "dwell in possibility".

A photographic psychological exploration of the seconds before the focus point is reached, inspired by the Emily Dickinson poem below.

An attempt to freeze time during the moments before a decision must be made, to delay clarification and inhabit uncertainty.

 

I dwell In Possibility - 

 

I dwell in Possibility –

A fairer House than Prose –

More numerous of Windows –

Superior – for Doors –

 

Of Chambers as the Cedars –

Impregnable of eye –

And for an everlasting Roof

The Gambrels of the Sky –

 

Of Visitors – the fairest –

For Occupation – This –

The spreading wide my narrow Hands

To gather Paradise –

 

- Emily Dickinson
