"Landscapes: A Journey of Self-Discovery Through the Lens of Nature" is my personal artistic journey of healing and growth, born amidst trauma and transformation. The photographs, private until now, document emotions and experiences from high school turmoil to adulthood, including family death, divorce, mentor loss, and culture shock as an exchange student during 9/11. Using photography as therapy, I’ve cultivated mindfulness over the past decade, often pairing the art form with nature walks. The resulting images, a beacon for self-discovery, aim to aid viewers in processing their traumas and fostering their own growth.
