In an effort to follow my own advice, to re connect with my creative spirit, I’ve decided to finally put some time into a passion project I’ve had on the shelf for a bit. This is a photo project, I named it “Beyond The Face” and it was inspired by my own experience with feelings of uncertainty, fear and the path to overcoming them. So often we become immersed in our own bubbles, not realizing how similar we all are, not knowing that maybe the person you pass on your way to work each day has a big story to share, or that maybe you could be the reason for someone’s only smile that day. Whatever it is, I believe the power of connection is extremely important and I’m going to use it to bring you these photographs and stories.
During the project I will interview and photograph subjects, at home, around the world during my travels, anywhere that my path takes me. I will start a conversation and dive deep to tap into your wildest dreams, your passion for life and perhaps the fear that prevents you from making your dreams a vivid reality. We will go deeper; beyond the face, hopefully into a path of self discovery and perhaps even a shift. I can’t lie, I’m a little scared, putting things out there that I love, scare me a bit but this is something dear to my heart that I’ve wanted to do for so long, what better time than right now?
I’ve already conducted a few interviews, they will be posted on my Instagram photo page @emagenphoto periodically, I invite you to be part of this project, ask questions yourself, become more in tune with the people around you. I’m so excited to finally get this off the ground. If you know me, you know I love learning things about people, I love the spark of getting to know someone on a deeper level, so here it goes , join me on this explorative road of connection.
THIS PAGE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND WILL BE UPDATED WITH THE LATEST BEYOND THE FACE PHOTO STORIES soon
