“That day, I felt my private world being exposed. Wrapped in my own bloody body. And the pain described as; délicatement painful and réconfortant. 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 familiar bloody organic cycle has been the entry of a new world and a reminder to remain gold… Or maybe I’m just maturing.”


Secret Garden is a photo series by Jessie Emile produced through one of her most significant self-discovery seasons.
