This shoot set out with the goal of two specifically planned compositions, a “light” shot with flowers on a pastel pink or green background, and a moodier dramatic “dark” shot featuring a jungle-like density of foliage . Each serves to a different aspect of the artist’s music, where different covers may be used for different releases.
Project Proposal: Mental Health Photo Series A series of 8-12 subject-driven studio portraits where a list of mental health or other struggles that the subject has faced are listed, physically written on their body. The series presents two main messages. The first is to display to others who may be struggling in silence, or just now learning how to express their difficulties, that they are not alone. The second is to show via the contrast of a blatant list, that the subject, and as such the viewer, is so much more than the list of their struggles.
