It lifts the limitations we place on ourselves and that others place on us. I’ve experienced this healing both in front of the lens and behind it. You’ve passed through your own dreams, experiences, obstacles and challenges to get here. Somewhere in that sea of darkness and light, there’s resonance, a kind of shared ground that inspires your audience to transform with you and crave more of your work. I know what it took to get here, so I take photos that honour all of it. Powerful trumps pretty.
I want you to see that your humanness makes you more compelling, not less.
