Hold up, I need to get myself together again real quick.
Despite all the heartaches, mishaps, childish ordeals, and betrayals I might’ve gone through this past year I’m not going to fall apart.

Let me go find myself again.

Dealing with people’s bullshit for too long and being content with it is no longer an option.

It should’ve never been an option.

I know my worth.

Breaking free from expectations, anxieties, insecurities, and blossoming into the person I was meant to be while getting rid of the unnecessary things that are blocking my growth.

Caught me slippin’ for a split second but I’m getting myself together again.

Watch closely.

I was born and raised in Nuremberg, Germany, and have lived in SOCAL since 2012. I started my photographic journey in the 8th grade. I had the opportunity to take photography courses at the Barstow Community College. Since then, I’ve experimented with different photographic styles, techniques, and genres.

For the last two years, I’ve been experimenting with and creating self-portraits. Dealing and struggling with heartbreak. Broken friendships. Confidence, and identity.

Using self-portraits as a tool to process and deal with these events in life, as well as using them for self-discovery, self-love, and self-growth.
Forced to face me.
