The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma: Man Born from Blossoms

The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma
USA   www.maggiesteber.com

The Secret Garden of Lily LaPalma is a series of photographs made in the shadows of a dark side of me that I have as of late begun to re-explore. The photographs reveal my fears and private memories, all the things that are wrapped up, not always so neatly, in someone’s life. In the Garden there is danger and beauty in a wild jungle that grows unfettered. The photographs address an exterior world now being re-interpreted in my interior landscape as a documentation of my subconscious and imagination recognized only by me. Thus the secret. There I am a maiden standing on a hilltop, wind blowing through my hair as I wait for ships to roll in on the waves. I am a wild horse running across an open plain. This is where my animalistic wild creative spirit resides among dark and mysterious ideas.
