Shards and Fragments celebrates some of my favorite authors and artists, introduces my own work in writing and photography, and tells the story behind my work. Archeologists sift through the ruins of ancient cultures. They gather broken pottery and partial manuscripts, trying to piece together the story of that place and people. I rummage for shards of broken beauty God has preserved in creation, people, and writings. As a writer and photographer, I practice personal and social archeology, unearthing what has been overlooked or undervalued in our lives, and in the stories handed down to us.
