Through lenses of the past I step into my soul to investigate the deep roots of my anxiety. What I capture on my photographs is fragments of lives of generations that carry their grief unspoken.
Transgenerational trauma affected mental health and interactions within my family. The holocaust, wars, living under oppressive regimes and child deaths all contributed to lives lived with anxiety and depression.
Grief undealt with, words unspoken, love unexpressed, longing for connection are all behind my images that are trying to resolve an internal conflict between the past and the reality of the present. By speaking the unspoken, I am trying to break the heavy chain of inherited and acquired grief, guilt, isolation and disfunction.
