I have always been intrigued by multiple exposures, a slight angle or movement in one direction or the other of the camera adds layers of color and shapes and opens up new perspectives. These images were taken during the recovery process from a serious ankle fracture while learning to balance and walk on the streets of New York. The process was cathartic in understanding that what is stable and secure one minute can fracture in the next.
