2017 - in progress
"Sleeping Beauty" explores the things we hide and the secrets we keep. Positioned on the ground, the women and girls in this series lie
in a vulnerable position, but at the same time aware. This project explores the elusive balance between strength and vulnerability,
intensity and restraint, the tightrope between wanting to communicate and fear of being exposed. Paying attention to what I bring
to the photographic encounter, I investigate the roles of power and trust on both sides of the camera. "Sleeping Beauty"
refers to the fragile and ferocious strength that lies hidden, waiting to pounce.
All photographs in this series available as 30 x 30" signed, limited edition prints
