"Dreaming In Isolation"
Make-up: Megan Kirkup
Hair: Angeli Marie Shaw
This set of images was the result from a spark of loneliness. I was feeling homesick. I realised that I had made the decision to move away from my loved ones to pursue my art and in turn get out of the rut that was my quarter life crisis. Did it work? That's for a blog post at a later date...
Moving to Melbourne, just out of home from a giant leap. Although I felt ready for it, I don't know if I ever would have been, and that's what scared me.
I was 'stuck' in Brisbane. I was comfortable with my surroundings, the locations, creative teams, cafes, family friends... It was all familiar and safe. I am glad we moved when we did.
Although it has been one of the hardest events of my life so far, it has been one of the best. I am now a complete fish out of water, I know hardly anyone and I am working my ass off just to get by. I just have to keep telling myself that it will be worth it in the end.
This image I wanted to be different than the rest...
I wanted this to represent hope and passion. The warm comfort that I will one day feel from being able to create everyday, love the job I am in and live with less anxiety. If I try hard enough and stick it out, I know that I can but I know it is going to take some time.
So here's to working at my bar job, late nights stressed over edits, rent and a messy apartment. To being completely out of my comfort zone.
