Laden explores personal anxieties and desires as reflected in the landscape surrounding an old farmhouse on Prince Edward Island. The photographs follow the lifecycle of a bed of poppies, sequenced alongside self-portraits and surrounding forest and meadows, picturing place as intrinsically linked with inner experience.
