it's hard to focus on myself in this day and age. call it cynisicm, call it being jaded... but this Instagram world(and all of social media) has sucked me into the vortex of unoriginality, regurgitated content, faded images, and self-obsessed scum pining for approval from others. (it's okay. I am a narcissist myself)

as a photographer, Instagram did help spark my interest in photography again. and for that, I thank you. but just like all good things... the masses caught  on. everyone and their mother bought a camera. everyone and their mother followed the formula for a "good Instagram photo." everyone and their mom got the likes. everyone and their mom saturated IG with the same photos. the same #tones. the same poses. the same angles. it might be a different girl... but it's the same goddamn photo. IG has become a giant #circlejerk

it's ironic because I participated in all of it.

I need to pull myself out of this vortex. I need to stop finding approval in the form of likes and followers. I need to  prove my worth in the real world. I need to show the world that I define my work. my art. my life.

please enjoy the photographs I have posted. it is a small window into how I view the world.... free of the criticism and negative inner dialogue that usually occupies my mind.

I'm sure I will find myself on Instagram again at some point. ideally I will have invested more time into my photography and art career.

goodbye for now. thank you for the praise and support. <3
