17th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
"Concentric Circles: Change Making At Chappaquiddick Island, 2018.”
This photo was taken by mobile (Apple iPhone), at Chappaquiddick Island, MA, at a professional retreat for participants of a year long family therapy training. The multiple concentric circles symbolize that the ripple effect of healing is real: therapists healing ourselves, learning knowledge and skill, then going out into the world to share that knowledge with human beings in need. Furthermore, the three wooden posts symbolize the notion of triangulation in family systems, and the composition also plays with the themes of boundary, clarity, and contrast.
