I love fashion as much as the next gal. I have fashion in my blood – my great uncle was a fashion photographer. Perhaps that is where my love of photography and fashion comes from. I felt the desire to pay homage to fashion photography and all the fashionistas out there with their fashion blogs wearing $3000 shoes in every photo. However, I decided to mix it up a bit. I am modeling clothing that was under $20.
These photos are also a social commentary, we as a society have become narcissistic – its the “look at me” society. We are always connected via our phones, e-readers, computers, and websites to our Facebook accounts, twitter accounts, Pinterest, and whatever new hot social network thing is out there for more people to look at and admire us. Everything needs to be instantaneous and at our fingertips. We don’t talk face to face – we Skype, Facebook message or use FaceTime. Ironically, we are connected by technology and not by being face to face, to have a conversation with, or to touch the people we love or could possibly love. Yet we want them all to ‘friend’ us, and ‘like’ us.
