I've been working on the ideas surrounding what I do with photography and trying to let them ferment and evolve. I enjoy this process so much because it allows me to visit and explore emotional subjects and really soak in the stories that they create for me. The direct openness that comes from using the text (which I ♥ like crazy by the way) gives me an immediate shot of honesty. Combining this with the often obvious beauty and aged quality of the images just completes the sort of candid, in-you-face experience. I guess I've never really been one who appreciated beating around the bush. I'm more of a just-come-out-with-it-already kind of girl. So... to just come out with it, below are some of the latest edits and additions to a series I am calling Throwback Romance and Other Sentiments.
