I am a storyteller.
This story is one I told myself about finding
light so that when I found my feet on that
path, it would feel familiar.
My images are inspired by Elsa Mora, and I
strive to require something of the viewer
like Julie Chen.
In order to understand this story, you have
to interact with the book in a way you
wouldn’t normally associate with reading:
You have to turn off the lights.
