Exhibit: Roots + Wings, February 2018
“Sometimes I cry so hard I think the tears will never stop. Sometimes I feel so tired I want to lay my head down and sleep forever. Sometimes I feel absolutely nothing and wonder if I will ever feel happy again.”
No matter who we are, we all face life challenges. No matter what crisis we face, we all struggle through a range of emotions.
Photographer Sara Harley’s husband had a major stroke in 2017, and his health crisis became her health story as well. As his life partner and sole caregiver, she experienced a roller coaster of emotions throughout his months of hospitalization and rehabilitation. An introvert at heart, Sara is not one to talk about her feelings with other people. Her hobby became a healing tool, and she used her photographs to create a series of composited images to convey her emotional upheaval.
Join Sara as she discusses the inspiration behind her exhibit “Roots + Wings” and how she used the creative process to help herself heal. Remember your roots, and trust your wings.
