Birth of a New Machine Book Cover
Birth of a New Machine is a novel written to help victims of sexual assault. It is a first-hand account of Gene Kane, a survivor of childhood abuse. It is a story of politics and community efforts to find empowerment and protection.
To represent the broken system (and the possibility of re-birth), I photographed old watch parts. Not only did they visually connect to a ‘machine’ – but they also symbolize how something small can become a part of something greater.
