The Time Before

Choosing to be wronged when righteous

Love lost
To old tongues
Languages of greed and grim fortune,
Of selfish desires taken so eloquently
To words long lasting, out lasting earthly wisdom.

As church leaves its people
Destitute, forlorn, wishing they had left first
A relationship…




Chance Encounters is a collection of visual stories and expressions, exploring elements of coincidence and the unknown.
