About Fruits of my labor series
This series is about celebration. We work too hard to not actually enjoy the fruits of our labor. We are often bogged down by the duplicity of our external image, documenting our adventures instead of living in those moments. So not only do we work hard to be in positions to experience the world, we work harder to capture it all in vain. Each piece, digitally assembled, is a compilation of elements that individually, whisper truth, but collectively, speak volumes. The subjects are real depictions of women that represent the variety of beauty. Featuring landscapes from Rome, Lima, and even Las Vegas, it was important for me to use actual images from my personal vacations. Exploration is one of the most fruitful gifts that nature has to offer. There is something magical about bringing context to culture and reference to reverence. Work hard, but play harder. Plant seeds, but feast your harvest.
