When I was a little girl, I had an obsession with our old box of family photographs. I'd sit for hours looking at the images captured in moments of time that held the expressions, body language, and secrets from a past history before I was born. I knew intuitively that photographs had the power to reveal more than what was on the surface, to reveal deeper truths.
Growing up, I would continue to love photographs, I loved taking them, and being in them, and then a strange thing happened. I stopped being able to look at myself. I'd never stopped documenting the life around me, but I'd stopped enjoying what I looked like, and often shied away from having my photo taken. It dawned on me that my mother had also vanished from many photos around the same time frame in her life and as I looked around, I realized that women everywhere were missing from photos. Was it a symbol of some bigger omission? My curiosity gave way to an experiment, which became a project to bring women back in touch with their primary essence and which gave them permission to "show up" in the world.
