From an early age, we are taught to run from feelings of sadness, anxiety and fear. This conditioning makes us so averse to experiencing internal discomfort that we master strategies for pushing pain away and making our suffering more concealed from public. “What Some People Read As Sadness” is a photographic exploration of staying present in the discomfort of the human journey, a celebration that embraces and exposes the adaptive beauty and organic tension of existence.
