Without Maya: The objects depicted this body of work, Without Maya, represent memories of time spent walking with my dog. Collecting objects along our favorite paths after her death, distracted me and helped me heal. Before this project, I hadn’t noticed the diversity of objects in my own backyard. I photograph the objects to make them appear three-dimensional and replicate a botanical drawing. My hope was to make the images approachable and allow viewers to experience something about death with ease. This series is a memorial to my dog Maya and is an index of over 70 unique specimens.
