“I wanted to start a project that was close to home,” says Massachusetts-based photographer Tsar Fedorsky. “The idea originated from feelings I was having about my personal life. While I yearned to experience the broader world, I also recognized that I was quite comfortable at home. I decided to create a photo narrative about a woman who dreams of a larger life.”
When Austin-based photographer Tami Bone was a little girl, she spent weekends over at her best friend’s ranch house, exploring the pastures by day and huddling under the blankets at night as the friend’s elder sister told ghost stories, the wind rustling the trees outside. The whole landscape of the South Texas, where she lived until the age of twelve, was colored by a palpable sense of enigma; around every corner lay a riddle for her to solve, a secret to decipher. Mythos is Bone’s homage to her childhood self, a return to the thrill and wonderment that molded her earliest memories.
