"Within Her Then" by Hunter Madsen

"Within Her Then"

 
TITLE - "Within Her Then"
WHERE - Port Moody, B.C. (2014)

This image is paired and contrasted with another version of the same image, "Within Her Now," which gets much more muted toning, can be found on this site in the Beauty From Disorder gallery, and is titled "Organic Decline."  

This more vivid, if bittersweet, version conveys a sense of my mother's lively inner life some years ago, before advancing dementia began to drain away many of the colors that had made her such a buoyant presence.
