This book is a collection of photographs, poems and pictoglyphs that explores ritual, time and the process of remembering we are nature.
Materia Prima is a book about remembering and attunement. This book holds my photographs and poems created over 15 years. The work focuses throughout the Americas in communities that are deeply intertwined with the natural world. The images reflect on time, language, and ritual.
I collaborated with artist Frida Larios, a typo-graphic artist from El Salvador, Tsista Kennedy an Anishinaabe Onyota’aka artist from Beausoleil First Nation and Oneida Nation of the Thames, whose work combines traditionalism and commentary on colonialism.
