The photographs selected for this show encompass states of reflection, cleansing, re-setting, and the emergence of new thoughts, feelings, and visions. Bodies in nature, daily routines, and still lifes invite the viewer to look inward and out. Subjects absorb the world around them, and the images are layered with discovery and transformation.

The inspiration for the show came after I left a relationship I’d been in for many years to restart and find myself again. Since doing this, I feel awake and as though I’m in a different body. I’m seeing and realizing things I didn’t know were possible. I’m clearing space for new memories, open to all that awaits.
