Photoset

I’m very very excited to be the newest addition to STRAYLIGHT PRESS, with my publication Strength in Disorder

This photographic portfolio presents portraits taken of women who have suffered from and since recovered from an eating disorder; these portraits are paired with selections from interviews conducted with each woman about her illness. The text along each page provides for a first-hand commentary about the experience of an eating disorder, while each photograph confronts the viewer with the beauty and strength of each survivor.

The book is available for $15 on the STRAYLIGHT website! It’s signed by me, and things get better … shipping is free in Canada! 

Support independent producers and increase awareness of eating disorders!

Finally, my 2011 portfolio Strength in Disorder is available online via Magcloud!  

Eating disorders are psychiatric conditions that are characterized by extreme emotions, attitudes, and behaviours surrounding weight and food. These disorders are incredibly serious, potentially life-threatening conditions that affect day-to-day life a great deal.
The portraits in this book are images of women who have suffered from, and recovered from eating disorders. Each image is paired with selections from interviews I conducted with each woman; they do not necessarily match up with the image on the right. This project explores the juxtaposition between true beauty – that is, inner strength, intelligence, vitality and confidence – and indescribable suffering. These striking images, found alongside words that are often troubling and always moving, create a complete portrait of the strength of the human in the face of incredible mental and emotional distress.

From concept to design, the whole project was completed by yours truly. I’m so excited that the project is finally available for a wider audience.  
You can purchase the book here for $30.
