Our Deepest Fear
Archival pigment print
24 x 30 inches
Edition of 10, signed sticker on verso
Our Deepest Fear shows a figure in silhouette, arms outstretched towards a cosmic orb filled with stars and galaxies. The image is ambiguous in its intentions, as the figure appears to be grasping towards, or losing their grip, on the celestial orb above them. Carroll's work is deeply influenced by Afrofuturism, and his photographs construct spaces where Blackness is expansive, looking beyond the limitations which racial stereotyping imposes to envision a more complex identity. In Our Deepest Fear the tension between the figure, and the power held within the orb of light and stars is a palpable reminder of the violence within separating individuals from their imaginations, dreams and potential.
