SAFE PLACE, SAFE SPACE
This series documents the phases of recovery through regression therapy. Franks interweaves her adult environment with spaces she inhabited as a child. Combined with linked artefacts, these images show her adult mind colliding with her younger self in an outpour of self-acceptance and reconciliation. Throughout this journey, Franks experienced both mental and physical illness, including Covid-19. The vulnerability felt during this intensified her connection to her childhood self as she regressed to childhood comforts to cope with her long recovery.
