Journey to Self-Love

   Through this project, I aimed to illustrate the journey to self-love and acceptance. In today's society, body appearance is highly criticized. The photos begin unsettling and dark as individuals may feel they do not want to face themselves. They are in the dark as they do not wish to look at themselves and as portrayed by their mental state. Next, individuals come to terms with themselves, although they are still unhappy. Finally, the negativity and insecurities displayed by the words are washed away by joyous color.

   In doing this, we embrace ourselves and put away negative thoughts.
