My work addresses the themes of distortion, repetition, and sense of self. I have always disliked having my photo taken, even as a little kid. However, as a global pandemic took away my ability to photograph friends and family, I was forced to use the only material available: myself. Through various approaches to self-portraiture, I have not only become increasingly curious about my self-presentation, but also of where I fit into this world. Whether in regard to my femininity or my generation, I hope to examine how society has placed me into this space that I am in. Hopefully, I can even critique that structure, as well. My most recent work, empowerment, seeks to comment on how capitalist society targets women under a guise of helping them. I then aim to flip that notion back on its head through leading the viewer to places of actual empowerment for women.
