Ava & Anais: The Journey Within
If you don’t love yourself, you cannot love another. How do you love the Self if you don’t know it? You look within, face it all and accept it… easier said than done, but not impossible. Then something beautiful follows…
I have always had a natural inclination to look inside myself, and when I first discovered Anais Nin’s quotes, I loved her soul right away. So, this happened…
Sometimes you can find yourself in another that speaks your language. When I first read one of Anaïs Nin’s quotes I felt immediate kinship. Books can be a window to the world, but her writing is a wide open door to her soul.
Fascinated by the journey within and the mysteries it hides, Anaïs ventured courageously inward and shared her findings through strings of words. I, on the other hand, have been using self portraits to document my descent into the psyche. It was only natural to put the two together.
“Anais Nin & Ava Sol” is a collection uniting two women who shared the same world in different times. What she said is what I felt and we both expressed the excess. Uniting darkness and light, making sense of the outer through the inner, transcending limitations and dwelling in the depths two souls connected through time and space lonely, yet not alone.
Enjoy the meeting of my photographs and her quotes as 1/1 NFTs on OpenSea. Because I have to take her into the future with me.
