Inspired by Bill Brandt and Harry Callahan,
this series seeks to emulate their dedication
and artistic imperatives, says Mercer. “I
pursue the sensual and the abstract through
camera manipulation and digital composite
“The Ways You Will Go” captures the tension
parents feel between holding onto their
children and letting go. “This project is a visual
representation of the dreams and life lessons
I have for my own children as I ease them into
the world,” says Korman.
