This image is part of a series highlighting one woman's unconventional journey toward freedom. The series draws into question what criteria defines female happiness and success. Arranged as a scrapbook, the result is a commemorative travelogue typical of a celebrated life event like a college graduation or marriage. The content, normally categorized as “sad” in a traditional societal narrative, is presented in a story imbued with hope, possibility and power. Drawing parallels between the ebb and flow of physical nature that moves slowly over millennia and human choices executed over the span of three days, the images echo that disparity in their tangibility which ranges from the slow process of medium format film to an immediately appreciable iPhone photo or screen grab. The final product is a tactile redefinition of a feeling that spans race, generation and class and is written into our collective feminine history.
