Secret Garden is a photo series by Jessie Emile produced while being in the process of self-discovery.

“That day, I felt like my private world was being exposed; wrapped in my own bloody body. The pain is described as: délicatement painful and réconfortant, making space for a new cycle. A very confusing blurry bloody world… and a confirmation of not being pregnant.


I didn’t pay attention until I did. A cycle I go through every month, for years, suddenly had a new meaning. This organic bloody cycle served me as a mirror of what it means to remain gold... or maybe I’m just maturing.”
