As an introvert, timidity is often forefront in my interactions with the outer world. Labeled as “quiet ” from the beginning of my relations, I assumed the role without much pushback, an identity conceived in part by social standards. Desires are excused to make room for continued silence, a product of fear resulting in frustration and disappointment. Photography is an outlet I use to explore the parts that are missing from my life experience, the holes in my existence. By illustrating my inner consciousness, I manifest and examine a tangible object, allowing transient brainwaves to become more real. The resulting images create a world in which I am able to explore fear and longing, societal limitations put aside. I ruminate on the missing pieces, desire alive and well within me.
