Phoenix Rising (NEW SERIES)

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. This is the conceptual conversation and lighting approach I will showcase in my photography for 2020. My goal is to create 60 portraits of strangers, emerging from the shadows like a phoenix bound to rise. The origin of this idea, is influence by the growing human trafficking problem in the state of Georgia. These portraits are meant as an "allegory of the issue," not a direct representation of the individual victims.
