As I began this photographic project, I didn’t anticipate it becoming such a personal journey. As I have recalled and recollected my memories, I have had to face some of my deepest fears and struggles. I have reached a point in my life where change is necessary and welcome. Instead of running from pain, I have turned around and faced it…facing your fears and embracing your imperfections leads to growth, change, and a new beginning. I am reminded of the verse in 2 Corinthians:
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17
I believe each person have specific moments in their lives in which they can feel change…almost as if the memory of this day will remain forever as a chapter marker in the story book of my life. I am excited for what God has in store for me and where further artistic exploration and the continuation of my project will take me.
