A book whose heart is embedded in the elusive and transformative language of fairytale. Looking truth in the eye and gently embracing aversion, "Woman" is interwoven with haunting secrets caught in the silencing webs of family loyalty. She is at once torn and cradled by her winter garden and given a liberation of voice that speaks as it bleeds through skin-thin alchemical papers.
Endless thread of love connecting mother and child. Womb is the place where life begins. Dedicated to my mother, this photo-book is a reaction to my own experience of motherhood and child birth. It is intense yet visually beautifully rendered as well as a unique object of art.
