I have been taking a little bit of a break from blogging and photography.
Getting a new perspective and collecting new inspirations.
Be back soon, with a million photos.
I hear people say this one line all the time, it’s even been directed at me before…
” YOU CAN’T RUN AWAY FROM YOUR PROBLEMS”
Well you know what, I think you can.
Because running away, usually implies running towards something else.
The fact is you are running into another experience, running into new lessons, new insights, sometimes even new perspectives on the “things” you were “running away from” to begin with.
And all those sound amazing… so…. why not run away? Worst it can do is give you a new perspective.
Oh my god. These photos are sooo amazing. It’s so inspiring when I stumble upon on artist like this. How have I never seen this work before? I’ve been missing out.

Here are a few of my favs. Hard to pick.
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.

No, I am not talking about the click of the shutter, but a click that happens within me when I see the right picture. The click that happens, after looking through a ton of pictures i’ve taken when one stands out, when one just clicks and you know that is the “one”. It’s instant. Here is a little preview of what I mean. I went through over a hundred pictures and these two just clicked instantly.
