“Emergence” was created during a difficult time in my life. I began this body of work as a way of coming to terms with the heartbreaking loss of my mother and continued through the course of the dissolution of an intense relationship. Yet, I found that as the body of work progressed, both my images and my self had emerged from the lingering darkness that had been surrounding us.
The images are about finding myself, after feeling lost for so long. Emerging
from the darkness, into the light. Finding strength. While the body of work is basically complete, I have since had time to reflect, and have been thinking about making some additional images and possibly editing others out.
