Sometimes, being in an industry where said leaders try to dictate what is right and wrong can be quite suffocating. We find ourselves unsatisfied with the work we produce simply because it doesn't reflect who we are, how we feel and even more, what we believe to be important to tell. We always hear about finding your voice as a way for distinction, but are we all really after this?
As artists, the learning process is constant. But we have to switch off all the noise around us to be able to listen to our own voice. To do what you love and what moves your soul is not at all to do what everyone else is doing and considers to be pretty.
I created this set of images to challenge myself and this is now a new project for this year. To look only for connection and love. When we have these two ingredients, stunning locations and pretty props are the least necessary.
These images were shot in both Ilford 3200 & Kodak 400 TriX loaded on a Mamiya 645AFD. Developed and scanned by Carmencita Film Lab.
