In-Between Worlds was born out of my contemplation of self-discovery and is rooted in personal, reflective experiences that have helped me to form my sense of self. This series starts to explore some of the challenging feelings I have experienced related to my bi-cultural heritage (Plains Cree/British and Dutch), which I sometimes view as a synergistic strength while at other times as a struggle between opposites. I inserted my own body into visual spaces that reflected both the inspiration I felt from my time alone in nature, as well as the concept of being “betwixt”. As I progressed, I began to incorporate sculptures that took on the form of talismans, further suggesting a collage of my heritages and identities. Following the struggle of seclusion on my outdoor excursions, I began to feel a sense of empowerment through experiencing a change in how I see the world. The photographs are an embodiment of this transformation.
