and sometimes she captures our quietest fear

Julie Elman is capturing people's fears, one by one, in her color and their words, for the most. Courageously sharing with the cowered that which cowers, Elman translates for us the private shudders of a fearful mind. In these images are the rational, the fevered, the memories, the dreams that shake and hold us long after the trembling crumbles amidst the light of day. These are fears that don't leave us. Her drawings  release those fears to the world but somehow don't make them any less scary. Her partners in this, the people brave enough to voice the fear, are champions.
