Incomplete Pleasures that Bewitch Me
What does inspiration look like? How far are we willing to go to chase it down? Is it even possible to capture or record such a magical thing? These questions are the genesis of my project, which highlights the adventures and misadventures of following a dream, an intangible desire, to know and photograph a band called, Thievery Corporation. “Incomplete pleasures that bewitch me” is the translation of French lyrics, “Plaisirs incomplets qui m’envoutent,” from the Thievery Corporation song, Shadows of Ourselves.* My process and understanding of this extensive, passion driven, and often solo, journey is yet incomplete – but for the past several years, I have been completely bewitched.
