These scenes loosely reference narratives I have witnessed during my transition from adolescence to adulthood.
At this time in my life I feel under immense pressure to prepare for my future. It is scary not knowing if my dreams and aspirations will come true. In the meantime, I test boundaries in an effort to challenge my beliefs and explore new opportunities. I experiment with my appearance, love, drugs, and friendships. I feel as though the world is at my fingertips, yet I am very aware that I am still discovering who I am and where I fit in. I can’t help but question if I am ready to be truly independent; if I am mature enough or if I am secure enough in the direction I’m heading.
These photographs are about this time of uncertainty. They reflect what I am feeling about a time marked by doubt and anxiety, but also by possibility and hope.
