"Even in deepest grief, we still have roses."
This series was created right after I came back from residency in Vancouver, studying working with trauma in counselling. I wanted to try and explore the idea that our stories carry beauty - because they are our stories, because we live through them, because we carry on despite them - and that we are beautiful. This series attempts to explore that.
