A group of fellow photographers came up with the theme “Fire Escape” for this week’s photo. I figured everyone would take the phrase literally and take a walk through the city, however I think it is more interesting to break down the meaning of individual words and redefine what “Fire” and “Escape” could mean together.
Somehow an idea quickly came to me. A body – bent, balanced, and arched – in attempt to escape the burning hot flame of a candle. Visual poetry. Last night (or should I say this morning at 3am) I ended up finally getting the exact pose I was looking for. It’s almost Chakrasana, the yoga pose, but I am not quite flexible enough to get my arms straight out!
