The opportunity to connect, transform and reclaim a deeper notion of self in front of a lens has been a profound and healing gift. For nearly a year and a half, photographer @lisafield12 has created an artistic environment of safety and trust with me. Her camera became a healing channel, and instead of recoiling from a reflection of self, I have embraced, deepened and opened to the internal and external conversations that have been born in those moments of showing up and connecting. What I carry forth from every shoot with her, and the otherworldly ones with @stevenkleinstudio for @equinox and Elise Goodkind for @stylelikeu (here), is the call to absolute presence, with self and other, and the resulting photos carry forth the magnitude of each transformational dialogue that unfolds when individuals connect beyond the end result.
