Afterlove/Aftermath

This autobiographical body of work emerged from a period of my life where I had broken up with a long-term boyfriend and was living on the other side of the world, far from close friends and family.

These images explore what it means to come to terms with being alone, and being aware of ones own body and sexuality. Ideas of the female body and femininity are core to this series.

Through heartache comes finding yourself again, and the connection to your own body.

It can be better than it ever was.
