There are times when distance feels heavier than ever. When time seems to make a point of moving too fast or too slow, but never in sync with you. Walking into the woods and by the stream during the pandemic was a way to think, feel and reconnect. The camera became a way to be more present, to get lost into the woods and find a path again. It brought out pieces of an inner world at a time of insecurity and fears, the strong feeling of missing loved ones found far way. Sometimes the pieces were broken, other times they didn’t fit. In the end, they helped shape an exploration of feelings, moments and thoughts from a journey that only just started.
“The question then is how to get lost. Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognita in between lies a life of discovery.”
― Rebecca Solnit, A Field Guide to Getting Lost
