Project: Katahimikan

Katahimikan is a publication with a narrative of finding peace. The name was drawn from the Tagalog (Filipino) translation of “peace”, “tranquility”, “rest”, and “quiet”. My mother who was born and raised in the Philippines aided me in choosing the name. This publication utilizes writing, photography, and scans of items that I have collected over time. The photographs and archive of items are used to navigate through how I define myself, who I want to become, and the feeling of calm when that place is reached and that person met. It delves into my awe and connection to the earth and how it and the sun help center my inner being. The publication acts as a personal journal for my thoughts and questions regarding my search for peace as a young adult who has undergone substantial life changes in the past year.

Two sets of butterfly wings, one yellow and one blue, centered on a yellow publication spread. Two text blurbs are placed on either side of the wings that talk about peace.
