American Pastoral

September 2020 - September 2022
 

The frayed threads of our lives began to crumble from stress and solitude due to the Covid-19 global pandemic. As a result, our family undertook a series of road trips from New York City to the far reaching corners of the United State. 

 

A different way of living began to take shape. These lands we had overlooked whispered with tenderness and an unexpected journey unfolded. Our bond as a family because a graceful melody and its rhythm, a reliable bond.

 

Rural landscapes overflowed with confidence while contemplation became a gentle, unspoken truth. 

 

This visual anecdote of the American countryside which was once mundane, revealed a sense of calm, beauty and patience. Perhaps as a result of all we have taken for granted.

Somewhere beneath the surface of familiarity, the promise of reconciliation and acceptance awaits.
