February â€“ July 2020
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 1, 2020, from 7â€“9PM
As I explore the natural world through my camera, I find that my photography has strong parallels to my vocation as a psychotherapist. One art is aligned with the other.
As a therapist I support my clients as they navigate the vicissitudes of experience, and as a photographer I bring a similar sense of respect as I capture the astonishing variations of life and interconnectedness in the natural world.
I love looking at the familiar in new ways, and using my imagination to disrupt â€œnormalâ€… and to create new terrain.
In both realms, I think that using a â€œthird eyeâ€ has the potential for sparking joy, bearing empathic witness to adversity, and perhaps even creating a deeper appreciation for the cycle of life. â€” Ellen Sanford
