In my photography, I strive to reach an honest depiction by defining a moment of human identity. Encouraged by the opportunity to meet different people, I humbled by their willingness to trust me with visualizing their identity. My ultimate goal is to create a comfortable understanding between my subject and I.
While getting to know a friend, I learned of her scar and was instantly astonished with the marks that the human body can mend within itself. This idea of the body fusing its skin back together being able to function properly again, is an illustration that the past is real and that beauty can come from painful situations. This concept resulted in this series of photographs. I am inspired by each person’s courage to cope with a wound and their openness to allow me to narrate the results through my photography. I believe that showing others their unusual beauty is one of the most precious gifts we can give — a visual interpretation.
