Grief in Place

In 2017, I created the series “Warm line through this land,” a letter to and for the land as an uninvited settler-colonizer, contending with the colonialism and violence enacted on the earth — and consequently onto bodies as well. Grief in Place is an unintended sequel and once again, attempts to capture bodily sorrow through the genre of landscape photography.

Created during a year when my own body felt foreign and a failure at times, this series probes notions of environmental destruction, capitalism, unrest, and beauty. Presented linearly as a sequence, each ensuing photo plays off its predecessor.
