My daughter Ayla began her transition into the world during the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic beneath the Super Flower Moon of May “ a poignant symbol of rebirth, natural cycles and growth. Her name translates into the meanings, “Halo of light around the moon.” and “From a strong and resilient place.”

The intersection of life changing events lead me to explore universal chaos and human fragility through an intimate and everyday lens questioning transition, time, life and death. This response was photographed during a single lunar cycle between May 7th and June 6th 2020 under isolation restrictions.
