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

I am a mother of a toddler and the wife of a man I love. I am a lover of all things photography, and a believer in Art, flowers, and dreams. Life stories and nature inspire my creativity. Light and shadow, color and metaphor, travel and experience, music and poetry, all play a role. I love composition and storytelling, and try to bring pieces of these inspirations to my photographic work. I am full-time mom, and that keeps me very, very busy. I try to do something photography-related for a couple hours everyday during my daughter's naptime. I also will take her out in the world and join me in viewing art galleries or photographing flowers. I have a blog where I write about work we have visited, and I work on it in the depths of night while she dreams.
