I'm a dance, movement, and portraiture photographer collaborating with movement artists and dance companies in Chicago. I often incorporate fantasy elements in my work with recurring themes of
flight, strength, and surrender. These photos are from a larger body of work titled "Smokeface" and "Mourning Replica" in collaboration with choreographer Savannah Dunn. "Smokeface" is a dark fairytale representing the loss of self, and the feeling of being trapped by societies expectations of beauty. She is screaming and struggling for an identity free from the never ending expectations of family, friends, partners and the world.
