Antilamentation

How to describe a dream that was real? Inspired by the beautiful poem of the same name by Dorianne Laux Hermione’s most recent collection is a journey through the past into the gift of the present. Shot surrounded by the incomparable beauty of the Kelso sand dunes Hermione rejects the breathless poignancy of regret. In its place she embraces the imperfection of a life filled with joy and emotion arrived at on the back of every mistake. Take a moment to have gratitude for where you are on your journey, you’ve accomplished a lot and need to appreciate it. As the evening primrose blooms through the sand and the rose quartz dunes sing across the Mohave Desert an enchanted wedding dress tells the story of this love and the threads of history past present and future woven into it.
Regret Nothing.
