Emily Candler Davis’ Opus, The Nature and Psyche Project, is a visual storytelling endeavor from Acadia National Park, a little heart-shaped island off of the coast of the United States. The images capture a human story or element within the elements themselves. Those prized moments with Nature when we once again leave our own process and return to the trees, the birds, the sunrise or set, a moment of awe or beauty or perhaps even fear, when we are one, once again in Nature, are the heart and soul of her work. The images in, “Storytelling”, describe a process of homecoming.
