“Alicia's photography always reminds me of the writings of Mary Oliver: ‘What I want in my life is to be willing to be dazzled. I want to believe I am looking into the white fire of a great mystery. And I do.’”

— F.K. Garland —


The Artist

My name is Alicia-Marie Lavoie. Nature’s sacredness greatly shapes my calling as both a photographer and writer. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Robin Wall Kimmerer describes the land as “everything”: the origins of identity, the home of nonhuman kinfolk, the source of all. Even if our ancestors originated elsewhere, our actions and seasonal stories still reflect our relationship with, and stewardship of, the web of life. And in a society that further emphasizes technology over, rather than a balance with, nature, we are doomed to forget our roots. Hence, the environment is just as important as the people and wildlife in my pictures. So gather by my camera, and connect with the world around you. There are stories to tell at nature’s hearth.
