India will get in da ya

I just got back from 2 months of backpacking in India.
It was indescribable.
The sights… the insight… It was perfectly difficult.
Everyday I feel grateful.
This trip OPENED MY EYES… and I think you will be able to see that in my images.

I have about 900 hours left of going through images and editing but am anxious to share my images so I will post a couple and there will be many more images to follow.

There are so many awesome images by the great Tim Walker it was hard to pick only a few! Check out his website to continue the inspiration – http://timwalkerphotography.com/

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.

Sketched unplugged

I sketched this image with a strong idea in mind. After executing it however people took it many different ways. I love that, I love different interpretations of my work. It is so fun for me to hear. My original intention was just to show being unplugged from the business of life. To take a second, without the noise, without the movement, just be still, in silence with yourself. Sometimes if i’m going through something hard, I just unplug from everything else in life and listen to my inner voice.
Try it.

As my waterproof camera gently weeps…

The last pictures taken with my underwater camera… must have leaked… but the effects were kinda cool. R.I.P hehe
