self portrait project 2016. 

i've never been super comfortable in front of the camera. i have insecurities, about my skin, my hair, my face, my body. and sometimes it's just easier to hide. i really believe that all humans are beautiful but i have a hard time seeing that beauty in myself. i also never want to stop growing and challenging myself as an artist. which means i need to take risks. i need to be vulnerable. i need to bare my soul. and i need to step in front of the camera and fight against fear and insecurity. and so in 2016, i will start a #selfportraitseries. a project that will force me to step outside my comfort zone. and challenge me to create art that feels vulnerable and scary.

here is a collection of photos i created in 2016 for this project.
