STOP-ACTION WITH CHALK
THIS SERIES WAS INSPIRED BY THE LOVE OF MY LIFE AND INFLUENCED BY CARL SAGAN,
ALAN WATTS, OUTER-SPACE, GREEK MYTHOLOGY, GODDESSES, SELF-LOVE
AND THE UNIVERSE ITSELF.
IN MY STORY OF GALAXY GIRLS, THERE ARE FIVE DIFFERENT GODDESSES AND EACH REPRESENTS A PART OF ME. EACH HAS THEIR OWN STORY THAT GOES WITH THEIR PHOTO AND MOVEMENT CREATED BY THE CHALK. THIS COLOURED POWDER CREATES THE COSMOS AND BRINGS ITS MAGICAL ATMOSPHERE ALONG WITH IT. I PERSONALLY TRIED TO REPRESENT EACH GODDESS AS DIFFERENT PARTS OF MYSELF BUT ALSO TRY TO MATCH IT WITH THE MODEL (A FEW ARE CLOSE FRIENDS) IF I COULD.
Where there is dark, there is light. I believe that this world is about adventures and experiences, good and bad. I want to capture everything in between. There is so much more out there, more than money, buildings, school knowledge, anything you can think of, there is more and I use my personal photography to show this.
BEING A GODDESS TO ME IS BEING A DIVINE BEING, KNOWING AND REALIZING YOU ARE DIVINE (WE ARE ALL DIVINE, WOMEN AND MEN), AN ANCIENT MIRROR OF WOMANHOOD AND A REPRESENTATION OF CARE AND GUIDANCE.
