from a place of love: Helga + Sage

On a quiet Saturday morning I called two friends to our ballet school to photograph. Curtains and a bedsheet created a white infinity. A few photos later, we were done within the hour. We went to a friend’s apartment and had a holiday party potluck. Pasta, music, a dark scavenger hunt with a reckless energy.

Then I went home and wrote all over my photographs with these words so important to me. These words fit my friends. I can hear their voices speaking the sentences aloud. I asked to take their pictures not because of how they looked, but because I could feel them everyday expressing the same ideas that I wrote on these photos. My friends are empowered and speak what is most important for people to hear.

What I do I do for myself. I do not need your approval because you are not me.
All bodies are beautiful.
I never cry, so am I a man?
