The Illusion Of Self

These surrealist-style photographs explore the nature of one's psyche in relation to feelings of confidence, motivation, and identity. In today's youth culture, although it is becoming increasingly acceptable to experiment with ideas of identity and self-expression, there is a looming and ever-present pressure to do it confidently. However, uncertainty and vulnerability are inherent to the nature of self-exploration. Through the embrace of those anxieties and insecurities, these photographs become an exemplification of those characteristic and the necessities of uncertainty in the journey to find oneself.
