Please read before proceeding:
I'VE BEEN TRYING TO BE SENSITIVE ABOUT WHEN AND HOW TO POST THESE AND I FELT LIKE THIS WAS THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY WHERE I HAVE THE MOST CONTROL OVER WHO HAS ACCESS. I'VE BEEN SITTING ON THIS WORK THAT IS VERY PRECIOUS TO ME (AND A DIRECTION I WANT TO FURTHER TAKE MY PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNEY) FOR QUITE A LONG TIME NOW.
SO, I ASK THAT YOU BE MATURE, POSITIVE, AND RESPECTFUL WHEN VIEWING THESE IMAGES.
These people aren't models.
There were done for personal and/or empowering reasons, to tell the story of one's love or trust or strength or bodily acceptance and sometimes, all of the above.
I've limited the view and usage of these albums for obvious reasons. I own the copyright on these photographs and if I see them used without my permission in any capacity, I will be forced to seek legal action, on behalf of myself and in personal defense for my subject's privacy.
So, with all of that said, please enjoy a subject i'm very interested, enlightened, impassioned by and grateful for the vulnerability afforded to me.
