November 2020 – January 2021
This exhibition features eight photographs engaging the broad themes of loss and healing. A whole range of loss affects the human condition. Loss of loved ones, loss of home, ability, identity, and so on. With loss comes different modes of healing. There is no correct response to loss, nor right way to go about healing – it is very individual and personal. Images are an interpretation of loss and healing and captured by a compassionate eye / I.
