Shadow Play

Below is a series of 35mm film photos paired with thoughts I've had recently. I think a problem for many (myself included) is that we uphold an image of having a "perfect life" but growing up can be very painful. I use to laugh at how much of our generation is filled masochism, but now I realized pain is a transformative energy that if not handled responsibly, can either destroy our life, or inspire it. We choose the way in which we respond to this pain and if we allow it, can bring great things to our life.
