Only through stillness will we reveal what hides in the shadows. Why a woman will turn herself into a living wraith in order to not hurt another. How she can learn that she, too, is valid in her humanity, and worthy of our gaze.
These photographs form a collection of the imperfect scraps of humanness we are all attempting to shape into identities and connections. They show the cracks in our paste-together jobs along with the celebration, confusion, heartache, and intimacy of our striving. Each image exposes a part of self, transforming a quiet moment in the solitude of Oregon's forests into an act of revelation. Personal revolution.
Open the box, unlock the wardrobe, look deep into the mirror. Lose your way. Find your strength.
