A Darker Side of the Garden...


It was an exploration for me.

A curiosity if you will.

I wanted to do a set of captures from a darker perspective. Something bleak and struggling. Not necessarily beautiful but still emotional and passionate. Captures that were intense and, hopefully, told a story.

What struck me more was that Sista Khadeshia was down for this, somewhat radical, idea on my part. She pulls out the make-up and the wardrobe and we did the damn thing.

A damsel in distress.

Check it out. Do you follow it? Is it too harsh or unflattering? Or do you really get the point? Let me know what you think.

I like them. They are not unflattering. I see a dark story of a woman at a place in her life where she needs help.

thanks CO! I love what we did here and I like having the opportunity to explore various perspectives and not being limited to negative or positive stereotypes.
