This body of work, "Inner Turmoil", reflects a slow transition from self-doubt and vicious criticism to personal growth and inner strength. It is the result of constant self-evaluation and putting into practice all the lessons acquired from life’s experiences in order to become a more positive person. After many years of negativity, am I good enough? Am I finally on the right path and making the right choices.

By using a miniature black figure combined with handcrafted environmental constructions, each image is essentially a self-portrait; a peek into my internal battle. The process of creating these photographs is cathartic and represents my way of analyzing my choices in an attempt to return to a more positive path. However, I am notorious for taking the hardest road possible and having to fight my way to the end of it. "Inner Turmoil" is an expression of my current path and an effort to work towards confidence and strength.
