Exploring the roots of my feminine strength, OUTLIERS was borne from a juxtaposition of feeling around both adventurous independence and lonely isolation. Vintage family photographs became my subjects, while their clothing was used to bring the images to life.
For me, the project illustrates a story of strong, courageous ancestors, primarily women, who lived lives far ahead of their time. Their stories brought to light how they pushed boundaries, and inspired me in kind, to embody the resilient strength the images portray. Through this work also came a sense of anxiety and disconnection, that begged the question–perhaps they felt this way, as well.
