I been starring at my computer for almost an hour, not sure how to start this post. It's almost unbelievable that I'm even writing this. When I started this blog 2-3 years ago, it was for my own personal enjoyment. I needed a place where I could express myself artistically with images and words. Never did I imagine it would lead to me hosting my very own photography exhibit. I owe it all to every single person out there that pushed me forward and always reminded me how much my work meant to them.
When the time came for me to pick a theme for the exhibition, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. As many of you may know, I'm working towards self-publishing a poetry book. It is a collection of short poems highlighting the beauty and darkness behind love- titled Dead Roses. I wanted this exhibition to be a visual interpretation of the book. With the help of a few models and a very talented make-up artist, I did just that. I brought my vision to life.
The best part of this experience is that the art gallery is right in the neighborhood I grew up in. I could not feel more proud of myself. I hope this will inspire many souls around me to be greater. We must teach ourselves to make the best out of what life has to offer us. Nothing good comes to those who sit around and wait for a miracle to happen. We must go out into the world and take what we deserve and know we've rightfully earned.
I hope to see you all on opening night!
