Have you ever had a dream that felt like a fantasy – glorious in your own mind – unrealistic perfection of your own desire. It feels like an ache in your chest – a need that you have to fulfill. Yet like that of a possessive relationship, it can be crushed by desperation. Sometimes the dreams you want most, you have to release for them to survive.
In this photo shoot we tried to capture this very concept of Desire, Despiration, and Release through our Colonial Sea Captain and Mermaid characters. Her allure makes it hard for him not to have her but to possess her means to kill who she truly is. In order for her to maintain her majestic self he must release her from his control.
They say art is an expression of the soul. My art is my hair and through this fashion story I wish to portray how I feel about my professional aspirations. My faith also tells me that my longing can not be filled through worldly accomplishments. Maybe for me “in order to have your life you have to lose it” means to release my dreams and trust in His plan. The only real choice is to choose to be happy in this life always.
Thank you for letting me share my theatrical side!
