Lorraine Castillo: No Butterflies

The Surrealists believed the creativity that comes from deep within a person’s subconscious is more powerful and more authentic than any product of conscious thought.  They sought a revolution against the constraints of the rational mind.

Lorraine Castillo relies on her intuition when she makes a photograph.  She feels “this ultimately results in images that are a mirrored reflection of my emotions. My subconscious is my compass, seeing for me.” Her series, No Butterflies was created while she was caring for a loved one battling alcoholism. She describes the series as follows: ”Darkness is the uncertain place we all go before light seeps in, and before butterflies can fly.”
