Title: The Archer

I'm fascinated by this image as we glimpse at the aftermath of a battle we did not witness nor were we prepared for. The Archer stands guard, eyeing the landscape for further threats with confidence oozing from his every pore as he swaggers to prep his bow. The landscape is calm, the environment quiet, yet we know through our own experiences, that nothing is ever what they appear to be.

The image was made with sublime contrast and breathtaking artistry without the need for special effects, sensational lines, or colors. The layering background represents, to me, an endless wave of uncertainty that our hero must and will face.

Today, he survives, but tomorrow is another story.
