Image Statement: My series of forest photographs integrates two very different practices: the energetic manipulation of the camera in my jerky iPhone photography, and the calm, repetitive movement of the needle in my meditative hand-stitching. While I have been taking my shaky photographs for over a decade, it is only during the pandemic that I saw the potential for amplifying my photos with hand-stitched striations of light.
