This currently untitled, ongoing series, stems from a need to document and describe pain. I often feel as if my body is trapping me, limiting my every movement and choice, betraying me even when we are one and the same. Understanding and documenting these experiences has become a method of coping with and working through the often-intense feeling of pain.
