Allowing time to breathe isn't necessarily seen in a positive light. Moments of stillness can be quite petrifying and unmotivated if you allow it to have that power. But in many other ways it can be an open space to not only experience fear and doubt, but also to flourish and thrive in the warmth of knowing you are discovering more about yourself, your beautiful Creator, and your work together.
Red expresses the becoming of a versatile woman —challenging the conflict between thinking about what you want people to know about you and what you can’t help people knowing about you. Exhausted from that demanding, societal expectation she once felt was a boxing her in to a defined individuality, but then looked around and being passionate, emotional, and understanding the parts of herself that once made her feel unworthy, now, gave her strength.
This project is a simple introduction to the four part series of working with color, emotions, and the deep + personal experiences I’ve had in the past year. It may be a bit abrasive or blunt when it comes to reflecting, but that’s a part of liberating myself from the downcast perspective I’ve had on my entirety as an individual — to give freedom and acceptance to parts of myself that I once caged up. Red reflects not only that, but gave me the space to explore and learn from shooting my first art directed piece back in Spring 2018. Enjoy.
