As ironic as it sounds death is a very important part of life. Everyone on the planet will die at some point, and the odd thing is you usually never know when it will come until the last few moments leading up to your end. It could happen while you're in bed, you car, or while your shopping. It's this uncertainty that makes the concept of death so terrifying to me. One way to show this uncertainty is to photograph myself in different situations that I find myself in through out my day to day life. My head is gone and in its place is a skull, which to me not only symbolizes death but because of its bizarre appearance also symbolizes the humor that is sometimes needed to deal with the knowledge of our inevitable end. Like death the camera seems to catch me off guard and all I can do is stare back at what has caught my attention.
