I was recently told by a friend of mine that my photography has the impression that it is exposing vulnerability. That hit me on a very deep level. On a personal level I feel like I put up a strong front but when I take photo's of my surroundings and of myself I find that I'm attempting to capture these vulnerable and emotional aesthetics. There's something so raw and beautiful about those feelings. All the layers of self awareness, anxiety, social status, education, relationships, hopes and dreams, they're all stripped away when you can capture that moment of emotional vulnerability. I feel like it was a good thing that my friend told me this. That I'm finally being able to show you all what I've been seeing this whole time.
