What you see here is the final image of an extremely emotive photoshoot I had with Mr Willmann's Photography. I approached Matthew about the concept during a darker time in life.
The primary objective for the shoot was to offer a form of therapy and relief. The process was unlike any shoot I have previously been a part of; I met with Matt, and simply told him about what I had been going through. He listened, and captured the conversation.
I love the final image. It balances strength and vulnerability seamlessly. There is also a sense of movement through time, which accurately represents the story I had been disclosing to Matt, from beginning to end. From pain, anguish, frustration, release and acceptance.
The haiku was a later addition and was written by Matt.
