"Parallel" _
Lewis Derogene (PhenomenaLewis) _
Self-Portrait Photograph | 2020 _
24in x 26in _
Limited Edition of 5 AP _

When PhenomenaLewis captured the photograph titled "Parallel" in her room during the summer of 2020, it was a time marked by yet another outcry within the Black community following the tragic loss of individuals like Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, along with many other brothers and sisters. The collective grief and anger surrounding these events weighed heavily on her, and she found herself experiencing a profound and complex wave of emotions.
In this powerful self-portrait, she sought to convey the depth of her emotions and her sense of frustration and sadness. Holding a chain between both hands, she used this visual metaphor to symbolize the feeling of being tethered or constrained, even in the absence of physical shackles. The chain represented a symbolic barrier that hindered her from experiencing the fullness of freedom and liberation. Through this photograph, PhenomenaLewis was able to communicate the emotional and psychological impact of the societal and systemic issues that were affecting the Black community at that time.
