About The Artwork

Tennessee Williams's little known quote, "A prayer for the wild of heart, that are kept in cages," is the inspiration for a mesmerizing photo series that captures the essence of untamed spirits yearning for liberation. "A Prayer for the Wild at Heart" invites viewers into a world where the primal and the poetic collide in a dance of raw, unbridled emotion. Each photograph features a solitary dancer adorned with an animal mask, leaping, twirling, and contorting their body in an extraordinary display of movement and passion. Through the lens of the camera, Charles Michael Davis, captures the ephemeral moments when the human spirit casts off its societal constraints and embraces the untamed wilderness within. The choice of animal masks adds a layer of symbolism to the series. These masks serve as a bridge between the human and the animal kingdom, symbolizing our intrinsic connection to the natural world. As the dancer embodies various creatures, from the majestic to the whimsical, they invite us to explore the depths of our own primal instincts and desires, often buried beneath the veneer of civilization. In "A Prayer for the Wild at Heart," Charles masterfully weaves together elements of vulnerability and strength, chaos and grace, in a visual narrative that speaks to the longing for freedom that resides in every soul. Each photograph captures a fleeting moment of abandon, a fervent plea for liberation from the cages of conventionality, and an unapologetic celebration of the wild at heart. This photo series awakens the untamed spirit within us, and reminds us that, as Tennessee Williams wrote, we all have a prayer to be wild at heart, even if just for a moment. It is an invitation to join the dance, to shed inhibitions, and to experience the exhilaration of being truly alive in all our untamed glory.
