Tami Bone is a photographer from Austin, Texas. Her photography is directly inspired by growing up in South Texas. As an adopted child, Tami always wanted to recreate an unseeable world. Come and embrace the curiosity of Tami’s vision, in this “Profolio” of her work….
Growing up I felt a visceral connection to the natural world.
The narrative of wonder was ever-present. Absolutely everything was filtered through a lens of wonder, and mystery was at the core of my being.
I remember a ghost story told by my best friend’s big sister, about a young girl who ventured into a creek, meeting a terrible fate. In my version the girl is a survivor and a heroine.
I had only one imaginary friend when I was very little. Now I have many.
Girl in the Moon
So many nights I peered out my window, searching for the man in the moon. Nowadays I realize it was me I was looking for all along.
Can we ever really see the unseeable and know the unknowable? I hope so.
Storytelling is potent.
And in the story of Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, this is how I imagined her; strong, ethereal and sure of her path.
Some seek powers outside of themselves, but not the rabbit.
The Big Dipper
And at the end of the day, I surely do believe in a friendly universe.
