Stephen Thomas Yeakley spent his formative years living in the archipelago of Indonesia, a setting that deeply shaped how he experiences the world. He remembers the thunderstorms rolling in, how the light would change, the smell of wet earth and the calm that came with the sound of the rain. This feeling is what he set out to capture in this series of images. By removing the flora of the desert from its surroundings, he found that its beauty emerged in an entirely different way, capturing those peace-filled moments from his childhood.
Stephen Thomas Yeakley has called Tucson, Arizona home for over a decade. He uses art as an opportunity to explore themes running below the surface of what we see in the everyday. These themes emerged from his experience with tragedy, loss, and wrestling to find hope. He believes that to have lived, loved and lost in life makes the joy that beauty brings that much more precious.
