Confessions From The Still

Confessions from the Still is a series of images taken throughout Southeast Asia.
The modern soul of these countries lies along their riverbanks, on the surface of their lakes and hidden quietly in their city waterways meandering throughout.

It is the tumultuous and sometimes terrifying past that speaks quietly from the depths. The souls of those lost to the Cambodian genocide, the dictatorship in Burma and the Vietnam War rest hauntingly in the currents below.

From the Mekong Delta to the Chao Phraya to the Irrawaddy Delta, the aesthetic perfection of the elements floating on the water's surface tries to mask the secrets lying below... to silence the confessions from the still.
The series Confessions from the Still won awards at The International Photography Awards in Los Angeles, USA, the ‘Grand Prix de la Découverte’ in Paris, France, the Aesthetica Art Prize in York, UK and at the OCCCA in California, USA. It has been shown at the Museum of American Art in Delaware, USA and at PULSE Miami. Images from Confessions from the Still have been published in the 2013 Aesthetica Creative Works Annual, the 2013 International Photography Awards Annual, the Grand Prix de la Découverte book, ‘The End’ exhibition catalogue curated by Gean Moreno and in the book Alec Von Bargen - 'Confessions from the Still'
