As many know I have been diligent about capturing a photo a day for a long while. However, five years ago with dad’s stroke my practice shifted. What once had been a project, became personal. A way of being in the world.
Photography became a way for me to calm the universe, to slow time, and to attend to my heart.
Seeing becoming knowing.
The documenting of images has always been a way of healing, or a part of healing, for me.
A few years ago, welcoming the new year atop a prairie hillside at dawn, I made the commitment to experience every new day, every sunset for a year. I missed only a few.
My year of light.
A video of my images was no longer needed. …
And then 2018 happened.
This past January, I viewed Alan’s lovely, speedy photo-a-day video and had a sense that the light had seeped in.
“Cori, leave it long. It’s for you. For us.”
And he’s right.
