WITHOUT WORDS grounded in nature
This series of moments reflects a darker sense of self found during a time when I felt I had lost my voice.
Without Words is a visceral and subconscious way back to the self. Unable to articulate my personal struggles with depression, these images bring visibility to feelings of vulnerability, fear, and truth. These are moments manifested from the psyche.
The spark for this series came from an illuminating moment in Savannah, Ga. when I found myself alone in the humid night air. I walked to the railing of the deck and looked out to see my body face down in the pool below. I didn’t know it then, but the disembodied experience would follow me through the next few years.
Nature, in its complexity, its sense of survival, and its inherent beauty, helped me return back to my body. When I dug into the earth, felt the sea and the wind, and connected to the essence of where I came from, I found a way back home.
