Nesting

Kisa Kavass, “Nesting”

A portrait photographer from a different world, Kisa Kavass has a singular sensibility when it comes to places and people.

As a girl, I grew up hearing and reading stories that created a mood and an inquisitiveness about the natural world. It was not until a few years ago that I began to understand the importance of these stories, folklore and fairy tales and their purpose in the processes of human histories. These stories that we were enchanted with and still exist deep within our souls reveal a relationship with forces not understood, the shadows of intuition. Through my photography I return to the imagination and curiosity I experienced as a child. I was a creator as a child and I needed to become a creator again. We have all had stories told to us in childhood that are pushed back into the recesses of our mind. My images are meant to remind the memory of those stories and to ignite new stories. I encounter spaces filled with shadows and light filtering through natural surroundings and old structures that carry their own history. This is the journey, beginning with the concept and ending with the viewer becoming a creative participant. We walk the forest path and feel the rush of the wind with the same sharpened sight and awareness as the wild creatures do. This series is a compilation of work from various stages of my studies into the world of stories and the importance of curiosity and creativity in all that we act upon.
