Affinity. Closeness. Longing for connection. These shared experiences are what elevate our lives beyond mere existence. Good or bad, they are the muse for poetry, the rhythm of music, and the ‘heart’ in our heart. This body of work is about exploring just that: our humanity seen through how we connect with something outside ourselves. That moment when we bare our souls and open our hearts.

Nati, Colima, 2007

Nati suffered from leprosy and lost a foot whilst bike riding with her grandchild. She's now in remission and is so grateful to the nuns, Marta and Letitia for their ongoing care and support. The nuns would bring them food and medicine, scrub their wounds and accept them as humans.
