The Call

This book is about voices and finding the courage to listen

Voices have been calling to me all my life.

Voices of nature; of all things alive, born, aging and dying.

Voices of human nature; of other people, of unexpressed emotions, unspoken words, unwanted thoughts.

Voices of my inner nature; of everything that lives within me and through me. The unpredictable spectrum of all that I experience by being alive.

I came across Douglas Ross work in 2011 when I attended a conference in Cork. I felt drawn to his work particularly because of the often mythological and archetypical nature as well as his use of the naked human body.

In 2016 I reached out to Douglas to ask if he would be interested in working together to create images to capture and communicate some of my experiences.

We have worked collaboratively exploring the voice hearing experience and altered states of mind. We found themes that felt relevant as common human experiences such as distress, overwhelm, grief, hope, wonder and playfulness. We tried to find the spaces where the personal would intersect with the collective.

Over a 4 year period we met both online and face to face to talk through what we wanted to create and how and we did several photoshoots.

In June 2020 we published the book ‘The Call’ which is available through blurb or by contacting either myself or Douglas
