A dream that I return to, to continue healing.
In a land of mystics and magic.
The project, called "Deck of Queens", is a collection of portraits that I have taken while being the Photo Editor of Inked Magazine, as well as after the fact with myself and other muses. I have recreated these portraits to reveal what I saw as divine and sacred of these women. Surreal to reveal their super power, tell their story, and be something to relate to.
Once upon a time I traveled upon the western coast
With a man who has become my family
We slept along a river
Speaking about our fears
As we awed over every star in the sky
While meteors skipped beneath them
We woke to jump into water that made us feel alive
With giggles and gratitude bubbling to surface
As fear and sadness sank beneath them.
The beginning of the end, yet it seems no where near here
For this moment, we let it all slip away in the water
For a breath of fresh air
