In Tabitha Soren’s photographs, archetypal figures struggle to escape or arrive – the viewer cannot be sure. Uncertainty, chaos and vulnerability infuse Soren’s universe. These are elemental fears made visible. Movement provides an opportunity for loss of control, un-self-consciousness. A theater of the absurd unfolds as she describes our shared instinct to survive. Her figures stumble, grimace and lose composure. They are both wounded and heroic.
"Soren's work speaks to the twists of fate in life that can unhinge us. Her pictures address what havoc human beings can survive - and what they can't." - Andy Adams "Flak Photo"
"My work is about what people can survive and what they can't. It's about decay, how life can be reckless, and how you have to keep going. I explore how people can pick themselves up." - Tabitha Soren
