This is a collection of images and text about the relationship between humans and nature found in the history of the American West; specifically, the body and disconnection. The anthropomorphic boulders are juxtaposed with blind debossed memories. In contrast to the harsh lighting and texture of the rocks, the embedded words reflect the patterns of the rock. However, as the viewer reads and touches the text they are enacting the same behaviors that can mend emotional disconnection. This work is a part of the 'Vulnerably Defective' series which won a Magnum Photo Graduate Award at Photo London in 2016;  was featured in the Selection of Graduates in Source Photographic Review 2015/16; and won 1st place in the Swansea College of Art Book Prize in the ESPY Awards.
