Once Upon a Time

Photos taken by Rachel Bussières, a 26-year-old Quebec
 City, Canada native, currently based out of the North Coast of California. She has been connected to mental illness since her childhood, when she had family members close to her struggling with different mental health issues. When she was 7, her uncle, who was deaf and suffering from depression, came to live with her after a car accident. Many years after, he is still struggling with mental health issues. Rachel, who has a fine arts diploma and an 
anthropology degree, dedicates herself to 
the study of territories, inhabited or otherwise. 
After receiving a grant in 2009, she traveled and worked in India 
where she developed her artistic approach
 from humanist photography and visual
 anthropology. She has also lived, photographed, and performed anthropological 
research in Amsterdam and Morroco. In 2011, she started to experiment with the fine art of paper making with natural fibers. The paper that she produces now serves as a support medium for her photographs as she continues to expose and publish her work around the world.

About this photo: “I call this photograph “Jennifer’s Dream.” Jennifer’s dream is mystical. It reflects naivety through youth, beauty and purity. It reminds me of a children’s fairy tale in which a little girl is asleep in the kingdom of dreams.”
