This body of work, Small Offerings is based largely on a visit to Varanasi in India and Kathmandu in Nepal. The prints are snapshots of the everyday, where the boundary between the sacred and the ordinary is blurred. It is in this haze that we can begin to uncover beauty in the normal day to day life and find gratitude, appreciation and delight in the small things.
