Photography is a medium that has allowed me to express without censorship. This project speaks to my journey as a person who has travelled between countries, educational institutions and interests.

“Unwanted” and “trapped” were keywords that spawned from hours of brainstorming and looking inwards. The ability to compartmentalize has been a constant in my life. It helped me at worst and through trial and error, I have come to perfect the art of it. For this work, I combined the two aspects into one. 

This photo series aimed to showcase insecurities related to my identity. I added a layer of contrast in post to create an atmosphere within each photo. The model, my friend, had her own input towards the poses and we start to compose the shots on the fly.
