Color, motion, and nature- nothing is more familiar than this. Something we’re not all so familiar with is the sudden loss of someone. We’re not taught how to respond, react, and continue with our routines. The combination of organic motion, seasonal colors, and my honest words inspired me to grieve creatively. In doing so, I combined and mixed instant film with other photographic elements that figuratively illustrate my exploration of grief, existence and bring my words to life. The use of these photographic elements and words speaks to the blend of emotions of loving someone dear and them not knowing as their soul departs their body.
