This photographic series explores emotions metaphorically when as humans we feel bound.
Inhale exhale ‘till you feel what’s in you.
It will set you free.
Past experiences can bound us but we also have within what can free us.
This work is part of a larger series I’ll be working on over time. The feeling of being bound can be extremely powerful. It’s different for everyone but most experience it at some point in their life. Whether it’s related to your identity, a toxic relationship, work environment, an illness… whatever it may be that has made you feel bound, held back, or stuck.
The plastic wrapped around my muse represents all that can bound us. There are many layers of it and it presents neatly packaged. Shiny. If you look closely you can see the wings growing despite being bound tight for long. The composition for the final unwrapped transformation presents the naked beauty that is confident and unapologetic.
