I have been using my photography to create a visual representation of my feelings about romantic relationships, called De-Selfing.
After a major break up, I deeply believed that if I didn‚Äôt transform myself into a more likeable woman, there would be no more happiness in my life. So I started to dispose of everything that defined the old ‚Äúme‚ÄĚ-things I did, said, and even believed. I chose to ‚Äúde-self‚ÄĚ myself in order to please potential romantic partners.
Creating the images in De-Selfing has been a therapeutic process for me. Since starting the project, I have picked myself up piece by piece, gotten my confidence back, and been able to hear my own voice again.
