SOLUS

so•lus | ˈsōləs |

adjective

alone or unaccompanied

For the last year and a half I’ve been working on this series called Solus. I’ve shared the first image here previously, but I think it’s about time I start to share the rest of it. This is the second photograph in the series. The full series is on my website: www.LindseyBest.com/solus

No One Knows Where the Ladder Goes

Few things in life bring me more catharsis and pleasure than making photos. This image was inspired by a song I’ve been listening to a whole lot lately called “Ladder Song.” This photo illustration has lived in my head for a long time… “No one knows where the ladder goes.”

The Myth of Sisyphus and Albert Camus

This photo of Sisyphus I made is part of a series called "The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Absurd Heroes" that I started earlier this year. It’s about Sisyphus but is mostly inspired by the absurdist take on Sisyphus in Albert Camus’ book “The Myth of Sisyphus.” The rest of the series is based on other mythological figures that I think Camus also would have found to be absurd heroes. It would have been Camus’ 100th birthday today. Reading Camus changed my life and I regularly read through his notebooks which, in many regards, I find to be so kindred to myself.
