Let's enjoy a quiet, mindful stroll through the woods together. Strolling with an eye toward the wonders around you during an otherwise ordinary walk could have significant benefits for your mental health. An interesting new psychological study contends that people who take a fresh look at the objects, moments and vistas that surround them during brief “awe walks” feel more upbeat and hopeful. Be awed along with documentary photographer Susan Patrice, who will help you look at the landscape through new and loving eyes.

Susan Patrice is a documentary photographer, community artist, and founder of Makers Circle. She recently launched the Six Feet Photography Project, a community project that encourages photographers to make and share images of their lived experiences of confinement and social distancing. Susan's own photography and public installations focus primarily on the Southern Landscape and its people and feature intimate images that touch deeply into the questions of place, gender, and belonging.
