of Solitude. published 2021
Following the path of solitude I have experienced freedom and strength, but also encountering depression and loneliness along the way. I have tamed a beast called anxiety and climbed from a pit of guilt.
This book is a conversation between the duality of solitude that can be both salvation and scourge, deliverance and death, and healing and harmful. It wields a mighty double edged sword.
Photography is my first language. These pictures translate as my journey; the poems as my journal.
Why I made this book
I made this book for me and for you. It is a deliverance from Solitude. A coming out of the darkness and in from the storm. I am done playing hide and seek. I don't have to be alone anymore. And neither do you.
The pages in this book are healing me. I believe they can heal you too. You that battle depression or loneliness. You who fear that first step and settle with staying put. You who are in hiding. If you haven't experienced any of these things you are fortunate and you will find plenty of good stuff in here for you too!
We don't have to be alone.
