I learned that suffering can enter our lives at any time and take root. My personal journey of suffering beset me when I lost one of my twins.  Later, learning that my surviving twin was beset by a brain tumor, I was overcome with the fear of loss.  I was unable to even speak it's evil name, let alone deal with the emotional damage such fear can inflict.

   After the survival of my child I found that the fear lingered, having taken root in my soul. Photography was the only way I could begin to overcome the paralysis this fear engendered. This project is the outcome of that journey. I found that we are all universally joined by strife and we overcome and learn to adapt to life in this new paradigm.
