This series was one of the first to spark a serious interest to explore my creativity. From an early age I have been raised and inspired by powerful women, specifically my mother, aunt and grandmother. When I first started taking pictures, women who maintained an eccentric, enticingly edgy image were subjects I was instantly drawn to. For this project, I explored an underground environment with artistic individuals whose personalities and styles helped bring this series to life. I chose to describe them as fairies because, just like the mystical creatures we grew up fantasizing about, their unique personalities combined with their free spirited nature allowed them to standout and glow in this underground setting.
