Today I'd like for you to use something else as a stand in for yourself.
An object that you feel represents you. something that holds meaning for you.
And I'd like for you to try a new app, or filter, or way of photographing that you've not tried out yet. Push yourself to consider new ways of expression.
Here is a dollhouse that's standing in for me. I'm the empty house. I had just gotten divorced and was trying to figure out who I was and I felt empty and alone and uncertain about how I wanted my new life to look and how I wanted my new "house" or my internal house to be decorated...inside and out.
Here, the butterfly is standing in as me. trying to emerge. Trying to fly. Made this after my Divorce. Can't quite get into focus. not sure how to use my wings yet. But pretty sure I have them or will have them because I just burned my life down to the ground and I'm ready to rise up from the ashes.
The white slip has been used in my work for years and when it's alone in an image it's standing in for me. This particular slip is seeped in secrets and so am I.
How about you?
