The Celestial Connection is a series of 25 images that embrace the link between science and religion. It is a catalyst for the human mind to explore its connection to the celestial realm. The title of each photo is aptly named to not only describe what it is, but, to encourage viewers to delve deeper into their own minds to interpret its impact.
The universe is all of time and space and its contents. The universe includes planets, stars, galaxies, the contents of intergalactic space, the smallest subatomic particles, and all matter and energy. But, when faced with such infinity, how do we define ourselves within it? This series of images only scratches the surface of what it might mean and how it might be experienced by humans and other species. It may mean life, death, rebirth, exploration, navigation, positive and negative planetary impact, love, fear, faith, and what we consider our final frontier.
The images presented here are my interpretation of each one of those concepts. This gallery allows me to reach beyond myself and challenges me to artistically create images that encourage us to open our minds and think about who we are, where we are going, how we will get there, and what will happen when we arrive.
They are meant to be viewed in the order shown.
