Ancient Mystery



Helena's nature photographs capture light in such a way that emphasizes colors, shapes, and movements found in the natural world. Mostly free of recognizable images and scenes, her work instead focuses on capturing the qualities inherent in the natural elements. For each quality of an element that speaks to her—whether it be the gentle flow of water over obstacles, the flexible way wind bends branches without breaking them, or the grounding weight of the earth’s rocks—she captures the tiny details in nature that are resonant with deeper meanings. Her work is a multi-sensory recreation of nature’s qualities that, when paid attention to, can spark awareness and speak directly to the emotions and to the unconscious. When nature’s qualities—flow, flexibility, strength, etc.—are physically and emotionally internalized from contact with the elements or with an artistic representation of them, such as Helena’s work, they can empower people toward self-healing.
