Vision Statement

This self-portrait is part of an ongoing series that explores the link between woman and nature through the lens of the landscapes I’ve known. As a nomad, I am always on the road, heading somewhere, leaving somewhere behind. Wherever I go, I collect bits of the landscape to carry with me, to file away into the woman I am becoming. By visualizing myself not as a body made of flesh and bone but as a being composed of the geography that nourishes me, I am able to tap into that spirit connection that transcends human nature and places us squarely within the fabric of the universe. By remaining faceless, perhaps this portrait can become a mirror through which each person is able to see the nature in themselves, and themselves in nature.
