Let It Go
Project info

Let It Go is a series that evolved from a poem that I wrote of the same name. It is a response to a previous series, Ghost Stepping, and is the next chapter in a larger body of work that explores my family history and the influence that it has on me. Whereas Ghost Stepping is about the ephemera inherited from my family and the emotional nuances of the experiences of packing and unpacking their belongings, Let It Go is about the resonance of loss and trauma, the reverberations. The ephemera recedes into the background.

let it go

body lines drawn deep inside
let it go
skin tones swimming in the light
let it go
silence is the answer he says
let it go
the shadow makes the wounded breast he says
let it go
a little bit of both of you she says
let it go, go on
