MOVEMENT IN MOURNING

A Documentary 
Photobook 2020-2022

Each set in this photo documentary series is a Photography collaboration with an artist who recognizes movement as an essential part of their lives. Artistic expression and humor were used to comment on our current condition at the time. But more than that, this project is an opportunity to be vulnerable, address the emotions felt during this pandemic, and release them through movement.
 

The collection is intended to be published as a reflection on what we went through as a community. All proceeds made by by this project will be donated to Youth Unlimited
