I am personally intrigued by the process an artist goes through when creating art. Between last year and this year, I worked on two photography projects shot on black and white 35mm film. I am constantly trying to find ways to incorporate fashion and the stories it tells, with my love for disrupted photography.

In a world quick to judge and sexualize women, clothes are the ways I choose to express myself. Society will judge us based on the pieces we choose to wear and tell our stories through. However, when the clothes come off, society will not only judge our naked bodies, but sexualize our naked bodies. We are vulnerable in our clothes just as much as when we are undressed.
