Entry Description

I met this lady in 2012 and I’ve been taking her photo ever since. At first she was shy and didn’t like to be in front of the camera. Although, as we shot over time, I felt that she started to express her feelings unconsciously and possessed a sense of being a piece of art. Capturing her freedom, strength, loneliness, weakness and her “inner-child” through my lense made me realize how beautiful women can be in any age. I appreciate each viewer’s interpretation by observing and sensing the depth, linked meanings of these photos.
