For anybody who knows me personally and is familiar with my past work, this piece may seem familiar. This piece is a part of an ongoing photo series that I've been incrementally been building on for the past 3 years. The series is titled "Indentity" and it has become a powerful part of my own self-expression. The series explores my enchantment with the world, but yet I somehow am always struggling to truly find my own place within it. This image is currently the most recent addition to the series. I'm sure there will be more to come of this project too.
Hélène, my Soul Mom. She passed away several years ago, and continues to teach and make my world more beautiful and mystical.. This has been my most challenging and technically imperfect project so far. I started over a few times, learned so much, and poured my heart into it.. I’m looking forward to giving this piece to Hélène’s partner André.. ❤️ ..Handdrawn black ink background / digitally collaged with a photo of Hélène taken by André in the 70’s / gold ink added to the print.. #restinlove#portraitseries#mixedmedia . . .
