The Madness In Me by CreativeEm

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

This is my second self portrait, one which I hope expresses a bit more of my less conventional self. I sometimes wonder if the madness in me, my childish side battling the adult, the realist battling the escapist, is one that can ever be harnessed. Is it a problem never to be solved or a gift to be cherished?
I’ve always loved colour so I’m here in my favourite top, my hair dyed chocolate brown. I’m wearing gloves similar to those owned by the White Rabbit in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and of course my beloved Mad Hatters hat. I have been an avid fan of the Alice in Wonderland books since I was seven and also have been a member of an Alice in Wonderland RB group for some time and thought it was time I submitted something!
Numerous filters and effects have been applied. The photo was actually taken several months ago but I’ve only just got to a point where I am satisfied with it.
This image combines many of my passions: art, colour, photography, Alice…and of course the desire to express myself in an honest but (hopefully) intriguing way. I hope those that view it understand.

I am an amateur photographer living in the United Kingdom. I have been taking photos since I was 10 years old but also dabble in drawing, painting and design, in fact anything creative where I feel I can express myself. To me art is soul and emotion.
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my work. I hope you enjoy :)

It would mean a lot to me if you would look at the work that my Dad has also exhibited:
