The images in Dusker act as physical expressions of interior states. Situated between exhalation and incantation, they construct a space where the ontological unease of ‘documentary’ photography, the aestheticizing eye of fiction, and the emotional texture of dreams within an always-already fractured reality intertwine.
Dylan Lewis is a photographer and writer based in Richmond, Virginia. His work explores the tension between image-as-documentation and image-as-construction, as well as themes of memory, longing, fantasy, and solitude. His photographs attempt to disrupt the already fraught relationship between image, language, and narrative, and to create a space where new forms of meaning-making emerge. His work has been featured by The Heavy Collective, Pomegranate Press, Ghost City Press, and more.
