First Step

The First Step,refugees,kadira jennings

This work shows a figure beginning a journey, leaving behind the known, she steps into the abyss of the unknown perils to be navigated, before reaching the safety of the distant shores. It is a work that depicts both the outer journey of the refugee and the inner journey that accompanies it. We see the dark landscape of unknown challenges and fears to be conquered – it is the heroines journey.
