Vessel weaves together symbolism and documentation to delve into the complex healing process following a medically necessary hysterectomy at 23. The project navigates the turbulent emotions of confronting years of misinformed medical treatment that lead to a chronic internal disconnection from selfhood. Personal experience is centered in this project which looks at informed consent in healthcare and the ways that assumptions about biological sex and gender impact the quality of care received in gynecology.
Vessel was published by Fifth Wheel Press in 2020 as a 68 page monograph. The book and selected images were featured in Wanted: A World for One Billion, a UNFPA and Photoville exhibition in 2022 at the United Nations Headquarters in NYC.
