They tell us bravery is rewarded, that we should have faith, that if we keep moving forward, everything will turn out fine.
But what if they are wrong?
What if, after taking that leap of faith, you wake up to find yourself in absolute darkness? A blind senseless body, trying to adjust itself to the black, with no sense of past or dream of a future to use as a beacon.
What if you had lost yourself when you jumped, and while fighting to see yourself again, the boundaries of your skin disappeared, and you started to believe that you were the dark?
The end of night is born from the darkness the photographer found when she moved to the United Kingdom. A stranger, with the ripped strings of her past weighing heavy behind, no roots. No light. No way forward.
She gradually immersed herself into nature as a refuge, bearing witness to the wilderness life cycles and harnessing the energy that came from them.
The book dramatizes the descend into this darkness and the gradual process of her transformation. Her awakening and the dawn she finally found in love.
your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
