There is balm in Gilead,
To make the wounded whole ;
There's power enough in heaven,
To cure a sin-sick soul.
- "There is a Balm in Gilead", Washington Glass (1853)
"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".
- "The Raven", Edgar Allen Poe (1845)
We are a husband and wife model team (Rusty Shackelford MM687727 and Katz Pajamaz MM292211) that also share our creativity from behind the lens. He has a degree in Television and Film production and she is a painter (Chris Joy MM770549) 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.
Our 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 our pursuit to infuse our work with the feeling, and belief, and being of those involved in each individual piece that is created.
Thank you for taking the time to look at our work.
