This series was inspired by photographer Ren Hang. I admired the way he captured people, as there was no message, yet so much to tell. I explored the idea of self reflection and inner turmoil, and how it would look to express that in an image. These four images are my own depictions of my troubles with love, stress, self-image, and self-doubt. I also play with the idea of vulnerability - how we try and act strong for our peers - and how wearing our hearts on our sleeves sometimes is something that we should be more accepting of.
