2016 - ongoing

 

Beauty and the Beast is an ongoing visual journal, which explores one’s sense of the mystic weaved in our existence and the ephemerality of the latter’s physical form.

Shortly after moving to a new continent, my routine, set in a charming yet unfamiliar environment, was shaken by a health crisis. Wishing to acknowledge, and manage, the painful thoughts that exist in contrast to my poetic surroundings, I found emotional release through photography. The process supports a needed communication, heavy to engage with otherwise, about the presence of shadows in one’s life and foremost, the radiance residing within them.
