The end is where we start from.
When my twenty-year marriage came to an unexpected end, I found that I was unable to immerse myself in the long term portrait projects that had been central to my work. It was during this period of grieving that I began to focus my camera on my own life, rather than on the lives of others.
I regard this ongoing project, The end is where we start from, as a self-portrait. It is my 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.
