Entry Description: I take self-portraits primarily as a way to show every side of myself. I believe there's a side of us that we show to the world, and I side in which we don't. I'm most comfortable working with self-portraiture because I know my own emotions better than I know anyone elses', and decided to make that my primary style of photography. Over time, I found it became a sort of a visual diary, marking both my good and bad days. Hope you enjoy!

About the Artist:

I was born and raised in Nottingham, England, but moved to the US when I was young. I discovered my passion for photography at 10 years old, the first time I picked up a camera I knew it was what I wanted to do with my life. I've never stopped taking photos since! I believe that art should be driven by emotion and passion, it should come from the heart and be unique to you. I am working on a degree in photography, and am determined to make this my career.
