Since ancient times, before oral traditions were written into fairy tales and legends, the woods has been a threshold place, a symbol of the unconscious. Dark woods as a metaphor for entering the unknown, the spiritual world which humans must penetrate to find answers.

This series depicts the woods as that place of magic, loneliness, healing and sanctuary, where rituals and ceremonies take place, where play and imagination run free, where we can return to our primal selves and find who we truly are.

Walking
in the middle of
my life, one day,
I got lost.
Dark woods,
creatures I thought I knew
but didn’t,
rituals I seemed to imagine
but couldn’t,
I didn’t stay lost
for long,
the sun peeked out
too soon,
and then I saw the path
to nothingness.
