Rosemary Feit Covey, Artist, Alexandria VA
I provided photographic support to my friend and talented artist Rosemary Covey. Her art studio (#224) is located in the Torpedo Factory in Old Town, Alexandria. The series of pictures you see here are from a photo shoot showcasing Rosemary's vision called "The 0 [zero] Project" which at the time of the shoot was on display in the Torpedo Factory elevator.
Thematically, 0 expresses the voicelessness we all often feel when confronted with some of our deepest concerns. The 0 Project offers a forum for viewers whose concerns are too subtle or too personal to be addressed in such a massive manner. It is a catalyst for conversation regardless of age, gender, race, political or social cause. The image is a reminder to respond to the world around us and that silence can be the equivalent of a silent scream. Fundamentally, it is a reminder that art is a vital mode of contemporary communication.
