Crystal Lee Lucas is an artist and photographer that resides in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania and creates haunting narratives that are inspired by the spiritual aspects of early photography and the Victorian era. Through her use of photography, Lucas creates compelling compositions that explore a spectrum of emotions: solitude, inner-turmoil, depression, anxiety. This exploration is a means of coming to terms with the past, present, future and everything felt along the way.
Often using herself as the subject in her photographs, Lucas is a contemplative figure set against the natural world. For Lucas, nature is both uncontrollable and unpredictable yet it is a source of superior beauty and strength. By incorporating elements of the natural world within her compositions Lucas showcases the transience.
