Somewhere in Between (2019)

At the age of thirteen, Sabina lost function in her knee. At the age of eighteen she nearly lost her life. In between, she lost her sense of self; and had no choice but to mourn it. Rebirth is often depicted as a beautiful process: the glowing phoenix rising from the ashes. Few people, however, ever bear witness to the fire. Through her project “Somewhere In Between”, focusing on the hand as a means of expression in partnership with her sister as a model, Sabina hopes to provide her own window in to the process of adapting to difficult circumstances but losing oneself along the way. 

Appears in OPAL issue 3 (Fall 2019). Magazines can be purchased at
