Health & Life Cycle Photography

Hi Colleagues,

Here I share health and life cycle photographs, some of which I included in my Master's Thesis.  In that study, I explored fear of death in end of life caregiving via writing, photographs, and poems that I produced on this blog:

I seek to consult and serve others in healthcare environments via the expressive arts (see my Master's Thesis), such as for those experiencing illness, loss, trauma, or grief.

My mission includes encouraging and supporting people's growth and healing during adversity.  My modalities include photography, creative non- and fiction writing, expository writing, blogging, social networking, auto/ethnographic qualitative research, journals, photo/journalism, collages, and scrapbook.

I add intermedia  montages to my repertoire and partner with health, expressive arts, and technology organizations to improve communication and people's experiences in critical life situations.  I call this genre of work narrative health, where I apply my modalities, or health narratives.

Narrative healthcare potentially benefits clinicians, providers, caregivers, individuals, families, and organizations by easing transitions, making sense of the situation, improving morale, communication, and unity, and generally encourage or empower people experiencing challenging changes.

Thank you for caring about the arts in health!  Be free to contact me with any inquiries on how my work can benefit you, your family, or your organization.
