Ephemeral, vivid, and therapeutic poems infused with mysticism and female sexuality, accompanied by intimate photographic portraits.
How to Swim Through Pain is a debut poetry and photography book from Lithuanian photographer, artist, activist, and poet Neringa Rekasiute. Ephemeral, vivid, and therapeutic poems infused with mysticism and female sexuality are accompanied by intimate self-portraits and nude photographs of the artist’s closest friends.
Taken on black and white film, these pictures were created especially for this book of poetry making it both a visual and written account of the author’s personal journey through a difficult time in her life. By diving deep into her individual and intimate experiences, Neringa creates a work of art where everyone can find themselves by immersing themselves in her honest storytelling.
