Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: Holden Caulfield is an infamous lonely, isolated character. His past and current troubles cause him to never really relate to the people around him. With the solitary eye, we see his isolated way of life which is removed from society and plagued with inner turmoil. The photo is broken up, which reiterates Caulfield’s inner hardships.
