The light of the pale blue night rises, across the land, across my human light. 

Hundreds of lonely teardrops are falling from the sky, down on my broken soul. I see free birds in the black sky. 

Let me run away; show me the way to be free again.  

Underneath this lather skin lies everything. 

Memories cast long shadows in the night. Resisting the light in my heart to shine. They know only sorrow, feel only pain. Burning themselves through bone and skin, from inside out.  

Pursuing down my human light. Release me now. 

Which wave will you ride on, the past or the future? 

I see the words how I choose to feel inside. 

 I am my own tree of life, connecting my heart with my human soul. Holding on, the flame of gold. Hold on.    

Emotional alchemy is inspired by conversations with people worldwide who have experienced traumatic events. They were asked their thoughts and feelings about themselves and the world today. Some have turned their pain into healing and love, and some to darkness.

Togetherness, community and support are universal languages

Sissel Annett grew up in an idyllic little place on Norway’s west coast, where she spent much time in nature, on horseback and down by the sea.

In middle school, Sissel first encountered the smell of darkrooms and developing chemicals. It was love at first sight. At age 19, she began her career working as a press photographer. She was inspired to see the value of personal photo projects, allowing her to travel the world.

The camera is, for her, a tool that gives her endless possibilities to convey personal stories. Her visual language is constantly thematically evolving; it is essential for Sissel that the pictures are honest and personal.

Sissel lives and works in Norway.
