About the Series

In this series on self-identity and exploration, I photograph paper in various arrangements and conditions to express my experience with resiliency, vulnerability and rebirth. I specifically look at my experience through recovery as a sexual assault survivor in the past four years. I consider myself a portrait photographer and in this series, I use paper as a substitute for bodies and emotional ties. I shot the series using manual settings to embed myself in the process. I specifically explore the photographic techniques of depth of field, light, line and focus in relationship to my overarching concepts. With the use of paper, I try to take away the familiar connection people have with the material and tell a new story with it.
