Close to the Sun in Lonely Lands

photographs by
ERIN KALLER | Mother + Photographer

 These photos use the metaphor of a bird to communicate feelings of isolation, restlessness, and longing. They are about the journeys we take to find a home.

He clasps the crag with crooked hands; 
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring’d with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,

 And like a thunderbolt he falls.

-“The Eagle”, by Alfred, Lord Tennyson
