This series was made with the help of a group of at-risk youth. Their hands were photographed while they were asked to think about memories, good or bad, present feelings, hopes and ideals, and their future. These are the shapes expressing those thoughts.

Tell me how can you carry the blessing, the healing, the love? How can you reach me, touch me, and care, when I am you, and you are me?

So unexpected, the reach, the feel, the growing. Pushing away the depths, rooting towards water. 

The flower with petals stands in awe of blessed and long-awaited colors.

Accept my heart, accept my tears, for I am your full and I am your empty, for we are together in this, until the end of time.
