In this project, photographs were taken of open sky over the course of a year.  All pictures were captured on one roll of film, with little to no clouds present, through all different times of day and year, lending an element of intentional watching and waiting, as well as revelation.   The ambitions with film and video deal with particular themes, and draw emphasis on a specific metaphor: it is that of the camera and the human soul, and how the inside is shaped and formed by what is allowed in through the lens. This idea stems from a biblical verse from the book of Matthew 6:22-23 where it says, “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness…”  Thus, the composition of the images are a result of what is focused on: a clear blue, infinite sky.    These are digital scans from 35mm film, taken by a Canon AE1 series camera.
