A La Sainte Terrer the "sainte-terrer": cite Henry David Thoreau. The art of walking or "sauntering," seeking holy experience from their feet, the land, and the sky. In other words, a traveler.

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Australia | Wednesday, 9 January 2013 | 5 photos


For as long as I can remember, art has been my lifeblood. As a young girl, I drew my own cartoons, directed video "masterpieces," tinkered with an old camera and sat poignantly as the exposed papers dripped dry in my home-made darkroom. As a shy girl for most of my life, it was my mission to use art as my voice, to show what we were missing when we weren't looking (as we are wont to do every day). In a world that is often bleak, I found myself an optimist, using my observant eyes and omnipresent camera to prove that beauty truly can be found everywhere, if we just stop to look: from the gradient of colors found in the fibre of a leaf that you pass every day walking to school, to the stories that lie behind the faces of strangers you sit across from on the subway, to that brilliant moment when the song you're listening to synchronizes with the scenes you watch from the train window. These are the glimpses of life that take my breath away, that offer some semblance of what it is to live with meaning, and which I try to capture with my camera. It is my life's duty to bring this awakening to fruition in others when they need to see it most, and I would be unhappy doing anything else.
