Alchemist’s Ascent, Spiral Passage Series, 2014, Archival Pigment Print, Alchemist's Quarters, Prague Castle, Czech Republic. The photograph explores how a spiral staircase serves as a metaphor for attaining higher levels of consciousness. ALCHEMIST'S ASCENT: Explore a spiral passage; Allow a waking dream. Slowly ascend from darkness. Unfetter all fear. Commune with each step; Connect heart with soul. To pause is to doubt. Artists and Alchemists! Transcend the imaginal realm, Step by rhythmic step.
