Jocelyn is a previous project participant. You can view her photo and read her narrative here.
Jocelyn shot with us in NYC years ago after being drawn to the project with a shared bond of twin loss and survivorship. She says that when she first participated she still felt extraordinarily broken. "I never had a moments rest from my grief but after participating in 4th Tri and meeting Ashlee and Laura, I had a sense of calm and closure immediately come over me and my life has been immeasurably better since". Jocelyn hopes to document how far she has come through her grief as well as where she and her daughter are now.
"I came to the project for different reasons than most. I've never had issues with my body image. I was so lost and traumatized and Ashlee helped bring me back to myself. Thank you times a million. I owe my current sense of peace to her more than anyone else. Just to look into her camera, into her eyes and know that she knew me, felt my heartbreak, was the single most cathartic experience of my entire life and I will be eternally grateful".
