We all wear masks, hiding behind a veil, keeping half truths from those we love. Once that mask/veil is removed and the truth is discovered, there is nowhere one can hide. There is more beauty and respect in being upfront and honest. There is only so long one can withstand the webs of illusion and lies that leave the mouths of those they love. Sometimes truth is too painful to bare, thus the veil. I believe it’s a risk worth taking ♥

I am a self taught photographer and everything artist. For me this is meditation and medication!
I want to invade your mind or strike a cord in your heart with what I do. I do this for ME and those I love.

    This feels like a haunting whisper of autumn. Hair as a veil being lifted, i like that and this beautifully compelling self-portrait of you. Your willingness to be honest and open in your work is one of the many reasons i admire you :). XOXO
