SERIES | Isolation

© 2013 Eric Christopher Jackson

INTRODUCTION
 
The world is passing by and this individual feels separated from it all. However, this person has made a conscious decision to be isolated because of negative past experiences. Hence, the all black outfit, hood over his head, sort of staring into space oblivious to the activity going on around him.
 
I feel like this is an important subject to address because I’ve heard about so many dealing with the type of depression that originates from isolation.
 
When you extend your heart to certain people and it’s bruised or broken in the process, a natural tendency is to protect yourself. A wall is put in place. When you meet new people, it’s hard to trust them and eventually extent your heart towards them.
 
It’s been a challenge to put these words into visual scenes, but lighting is important to me. I decided to photograph all the scenes at night because the individual is essentially hiding from everyone.
 
Perhaps, including himself.

IGNORE
 
What happens when you turn your
back on the World?
 
 
 
TIME FLIES
 
While you stand still, they move on.
 
 
 
ISOLATED
 
My prison.
My home.
My burial.
 
 
 
CAPTURED
 
Surrounded by light.
Hidden in darkness.
 
 
 
NO ESCAPE
 
Emerge from the shadows to face the light
only to find the darkness is me.
 
 
 
EMPTY
 
Against the night sky
I try to fly
Away from all the
Empty space
Inside.
 
 
 
HOPELESS
 
Is it a pit of despair
A restless hope
 
Unspoken dreams
That are broken
And have left me
 
Hopeless
 
 
 
WALK
 
Why keep going
Why keep walking
Why keep dreaming
 
Because I have
No place else
To go
