Burst to Earth
This series is a personal project that I created in an attempt to better understand the fashion industry in relation to myself. I do not consider these nude portraits, but fashion photographs, as much as any of the others here in the other albums. They are so because they address the issues most prevalent in fashion – race, body image, self-esteem, and retouching. When we are born into the world, we are a clean slate, and we spend our lives acquiring ourselves. When we leave the world, we take nothing with us. This series explores the in-between period. This is who we truly are underneath it all, when we burst to Earth.
