Please support my friend Donna FERRATO's I AM UNBEATABLE campaign as I just did and will do without any hesitation in the future. You can discover her work about domestic violence on Domestic Abuse Awareness Inc., or in that New York Times article. Facebook Page here.
”I AM UNBEATABLE will showcase the voices and images of a wide range of courageous people through a book and multimedia platforms. The amazing courage I have seen over the last 30 years has inspired me to create a body of work that captures the fulfillment many women find after leaving their oppressors and taking control of their own destinies. I want to make portraits to record the stories of people who bravely struggle to transform their reality.
In offering your support, you are helping to continue the work of a lifetime. I have encountered some of the most idealistic, funny, passionate, determined, and strong individuals throughout my career. It is difficult to fully convey the way this journey has defined and impacted me; without question, it is one I would take again." - Donna FERRATO

Long conversation about my work and the transformative power of Art, with curator and artist Mark Alice Durant on Saint-Lucy
Mark Alice Durant : On your blog you cite many influences – I can really see Ingmar Bergman – especially in your new video Nocturnal. The woman in your video is reminiscent of Liv Ullmann. She has her eyes closed, as she is half-hidden amongst nocturnal flowers. A light off camera seems to be swinging slowly back and forth – creating a kind of hypnotic beam. Her eyes are closed and therefore she is unavailable to us – she is completely internal, exploring her own internal landscape. I also like how this video is so still – it creates an interstitial space between the still and moving image, which is in keeping with the woman’s enigmatic presence. Is she sleeping ? Is she dreaming ? Are we dreaming ?
