ARTIST STATEMENT

lille squarish

I work in an emergent manner, vaguely planning what themes I want to shoot on a given outing. On location, I move swiftly and stealthily, forgoing the tripod wherever possible, allowing the energy of a place to guide me where and when to press the shutter. This way, photography becomes like a spiritual practice, exciting in its explorations, sublime in its revelations, energizing and renewing to body, mind, and heart.

Through the photographs I create, I aim to take you along with me in my explorations of the Hawaiian Islands and beyond, and share with you these unique moments in which your soul stirs with a deep, ineffable remembering of something divine, your heart fills with love and joy, and your body grounds in harmony with life right here, right now.

I invite you to follow me on Instagram. @lille17
