photo stories - joanna pallaris

Joanna gives glimpses.  She gives glimpses of sorrows and
moods and magics.  Then characters and wishes and the moments 
where things shift into something new or dangerous.  She enjoys 
creating stories in photos that ask more questions than they 
answer.  She seeks to add unreality to reality, and her photos 
refuse the anchors of time and era.  She is an artist; mystery and 
melancholy are her tools. 

The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the 
mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll 
always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer. 
They think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek 
mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants 
grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than 
the need for an answer.
- Ken Kesey
