Book Title: Escapism – words + photos
Release Date: September 30th, 2016
Author: Candice Lee
This is a story about love and loss. This full-color book is a collection of poems and landscape photographs–all written, shot, and arranged by the author.
Composed in the style of a memoir, she shares her experiences through words and photos. This window into her emotions reveals the dark side of love as it narrates the journey through relationships, friendships, it’s-complicated-ships, and self-identity. But really, it’s a story about finding beauty in pain through growth.
Note from the author:
“Everybody hurts. But not everyone is willing to share their pain from weak moments. It’s difficult to put it all out there. I believe, these are the moments that mark beginnings of transformation. I hope this book helps people feel a little less lonely and a little more inspired. We all feel it.”
Photographs include: Yosemite NP; Antelope Island SP; Anza-Borrego Desert SP; Death Valley NP; Glacier NP; Grand Teton NP; Lake Tahoe, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Olympic NP; Pacific NW beaches; Provincetown, MA; Saguaro NP; Saratoga Springs, UT; Sequoia & Kings Canyon NP; Sierra Nevadas; White Sands NM; Yellowstone NP; and more.
