The end is where we start from.
In early 2018 my twenty-year marriage came to an end. My husband's sudden departure was a painful shock and, in the months that followed, I found that I was unable to do the kind of work that had sustained me in the past. And so, during this period of grieving, I focused my camera on my own life, rather than on the lives of others.
I regard this project as a self-portrait. It is an attempt to tell a story of the events, memories, and emotions that have shaped my own recent history. It is my record of an uneven journey through grief and isolation, and into the unknown territory that exists beyond great loss.
