remembering the ghost crab summer (when the waves took me)

spring 2020

When I was little, my family would go to North Carolina for the summer. I dove in to the tall waves with my dad and later we caught ghost crabs on the beach at night. 

The beach is where I had learned to be the most aware of bodies. How they look, how they feel, how exposed they are.
How they are perceived and displayed. How I feel about them. 

This collection is an exploration of, to some extent, a sexual awakening. The phase of life where you become aware of how people talk about women’s bodies.
