it's interesting how experience shapes what one finds beautiful. in 2012 i created this story, the may queen. all the images below were outtakes. i despised the bleeding of the film, it made the work ugly i thought. i was obsessed with my images being perfect. now, 3 years later, a couple of these are my favourites from this series.
i have been bleeding.
and i do not find that ugly.
in fact i find the journey i have been through to be beautiful.
there was a new beginning in 2012! there is another one happening now:)
this makes me excited:
that you are here -
that life exists & identity;
that the powerful play goes on,
you may contribute a verse.
