This new project is an extension of my BIRTH series. As I was walking the garden, photographing flower buds, I noticed and was moved by the damage taken by flowers that had recently bloomed and suffered through a frost. I was reflecting on life and our baby who’s about to enter this world in pristine condition. I have an instinctual urge to protect him from hardship, yet I believe we gain wisdom with our scars. This is a natural aspect of life and it should be celebrated. So I’m developing this series of photographs called WOUNDS & WISDOM.
