Wabi-sabi is a Japanese world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. It is sometimes described as beauty that is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete, containing characteristics of asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty and intimacy.
The mannequin in this gallery I found in a junkyard. She was, and is, imperfect, impermanent and incomplete, as one might suggest we all are in varying degrees.
My intent with this gallery was to combine this mannequin's Wabi-sabiness with my photography and create a group of images that are beautifully imperfect, rough, intimate and suggest, perhaps shout, impermanence.
