“ I am on a mission to inspire people to express who they are, to feel confident and worthy, embracing their emotions and desires and becoming the best version of themselves in this society. ”

When we are faced with certain environments and issues we can either flourish or retreat. This project aims to inspire those who need a voice, and look into emotions and thoughts that shape who we are

About this project

I have been working on this topic since my foundation diploma last year, looking into social and psychological issues that make us feel unworthy to certain ideals. Whilst also building up my professional skills through some assisting and event work, I have continued my search into helping myself and others express their deep fears and desires through images, creating characters and releasing emotions that slowly heal their scars through photography, a fantastic form of therapy and expression.
