This is a collaborative photo essay project that explores the intricacies, pleasures and responsibilities of being relative. Through portraiture, storytelling, conversation and reflection, I am exploring "being" as an amalgamation of various forms of "others," with a focus on particular land, women and substances. Themes underlying this work include: perceptions and experiences of relatedness and relationality, death and dying, roses, fire and dreaming.
A segment will be exhibited at Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography from Jan - Feb 2022.

This is a short photo series, that considers the life and liveliness of marsh, bog, and swamp ecosystems. It serves as a prompt, or seed, for a project that I hope to explore more in the future. I am interested in delving into archaeological, geographical, and socio-political narratives and artifacts that surface with various "bog bodies" and muddy our histories and relations.
