Student Narrative

This is a series of three books that investigate the process of learning to love a new home. Using photos from my last two years in South Carolina, I created spreads to accompany a selection of poems that revolve around swamps. The poems describe struggle and love, reflecting how feelings for a new home can change over time. The imagery is deliberately ambiguous, and parts of the photographs are obscured with drawings and textures to open the narrative to other people and places.
