There is balm in Gilead,
To make the wounded whole ;
There's power enough in heaven,
To cure a sin-sick soul.
"Prophet!" said I, "thing of evil! – prophet still, if bird or devil! —
Whether Tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,
Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted —
On this home by Horror haunted – tell me truly, I implore —
"Is there – is there balm in Gilead? – tell me – tell me, I implore!"
Quoth the Raven "Nevermore".
- Edgar Allen Poe
We are a husband and wife team (Rusty Shackelford and Katz Pajamaz as models) that are looking to broaden our creativity from in front of the lens to behind it as well. He has a degree in Television and Film production and she is an experienced painter who has expanded her notable artistic skills to also include image editing. You may note some painting influence to some of the post work in our images. We have a deep passion for art and the expression it provides and relish the opportunity to work with individuals who share in our love for it.
My hope is that through the painstaking efforts and love invested by ourselves and our subjects we are able to reflect a fraction of our respect and admiration not only for art, but for humanity, individuality, uniqueness and the human experience as a whole. This is not an endeavor to create conventionally beautiful imagery but a pursuit to enlighten ourselves and others in a profound and significant manner as to the context of our rich internal and external existence.... Art is meant to be not merely seen or gazed upon but felt, and it is my aspiration to infuse our work with the feeling, and belief, and being of those involved in each individual piece that is created.
