A Field Guide to Internal Icebergs is an investigation of landscape as a metaphor for internal experience. It uses exploration and observation of the natural world, in the form of a traditional pocket field guide, as a means of identifying and understanding the complexities of self and of identity.

I created this book – photographs and writing – in response to a trip to Newfoundland in June, 2017. The coast of Newfoundland felt like the edge of the earth, and created a point of entry for investigations into the limits of self and identity, and into the ways we can come to a better understanding of our familiar internal landscapes through exploration of unfamiliar lands and geographies.
