Loner


Loner. Lover. Pawn. Which one are you?

Despite how difficult the emotions are for me behind each of the images in this set, they were surprisingly easy and fun to create...

Photographing a self-portrait with a piece of fabric covering ones face, making it difficult to see and breathe, can be quite the challenge! Yet each of these images have come together far easier than I expected, both while capturing the images and while editing them in Photoshop.

I never intended these to become a series. Initially I created "Lover" as a standalone image. Then "Pawn" followed, making this a set and posing the question: Lover or Pawn? Now during this time of self isolation, a further question has presented itself: Loner, Lover or Pawn?

Have you ever truly known what loneliness is? Do you fear being alone? For some loneliness is freedom. Freedom from being judged. Freedom from being discarded.

I have a feeling that more questions will present themselves and that this series will develop further. What questions does this set of images and the thoughts/emotions behind them, raise for you?
