“Story telling with the human body. My images touch on themes of plastic waste, the duality of existence, and the juxtaposition of beauty and ugliness.”

Editor’s comment: The minimalist composition, contrast of pastel colors and bold staging make this image work. It’s artful and beautiful, while perhaps hinting at something more troubling – the problem of plastic waste, here accentuated by the purity of the environment and the cloaks that almost suffocate. It leaves a strong impression.
