Winter night walk 2005

This is an image from my very first portfolio I used to get into Sheridan College in 2005. Back when I used film.
I remember the determination pumping through me while making this portfolio, trying to get accepted.


I’ve taken a lot of footsteps since then…

Pressure on Women

I took a few different images from other series i’ve done and kind of created a new one. It’s called. “Pressure on Women”  As a woman myself, the pressure put on us is CRAZY making. There is a lot of pressure on men too, and i’ve attempted some shots portraying that as well, but I am a woman and conceptually speaking way more comes to my mind in that direction. The reason these pressures are associated with death in these pieces, is because I wanted to show that, you will die before you achieve “perfection” as a woman.  That is, if perfection to you is defined by others. If you are looking for perfection in your looks, or your supposed “role” as are taught by the media….You might as well die, because it isn’t real. They want us to look to them for the answers, but the answers are in each on of us. Perfection is already in each of us from the beginning. Look Inward, not Outward.

Can you believe…

Humans used to have to pick these in order to consume them. Now we just have rows and rows of food and our money replaces the work of actually going out to get them.  Everything seems to be going in the direction of convenience… Does that mean we are getting lazier? Or does it just give us more time to focus on more important things?
What do you think?

One day…

Who you are right now, your age, your body, your perspective, your situation…. will all be but a memory. Maybe when older people  tell us “this is the time of our life”, we need to listen, and THOROUGHLY enjoy EACH MOMENT! We will never be able to look through these eyes again. Just now.

Looking for Clarity.

Sometimes it’s hard to see when you feel surrounded. Problems, big small, stress’ of life, all swirling up around you until you feel overwhelmed.
I keep looking for clarity, but maybe the answer is to embrace the troubles, go into the smoke and make it beautiful.

Bookshop Sessions.

Mumford and Sons is one of my favorite bands.
I have some beautiful memories and thoughts attached to their songs, some having nothing to do with the actual songs themselves but they re-spark the feelings I once had.
One of my most peaceful moments to date, was walking along the Ocean in Florida, beach empty, Mumford and Sons on my ipod, low volume so I could still hear the waves and feel the sand between my toes and the ocean rolling at my feet. mmmm.
I love these versions of the songs, Bookshop Sessions.
