For this series, I wanted to capture the subject in a specific way that I felt best represented him, prior to my impressions and the energy I gathered from meeting with him in person. He was very light and delicate and you could tell he was going through a new phase/stage in his life or that he's starting a new chapter. I really wanted to document this metamorphosis. I linked the initial concept to the 70s with the whole 'free-will-hippy-living' type of vibe. I portrayed him as a flower, as flowers are delicate and fragile; yet still continue growing through stress and hard times nature throws at them. I also saw him as this radiant being, almost glowing through his growth; and I really love the way flowers, especially sunflowers capture sunlight and allow it to bounce off their petals. So the overall concept was based off the subjects growth he was going through at that current time.
I am a student at the Art Institute in North Hollywood - California. My major is Digital Cinema and Video Production but do photography on the side to keep pushing my creative boundaries.
