This is Carole.
We have known each other for over twenty years. This image was one of a few that was created towards the end of our day together.
What is intetesting was the realisation about what worked and what didn’t. I will let Carole tell you about that.
My point of view in this post is very matter of fact.
This image would not have been possible without the long conversation before hand.
We spoke about beauty, DNA, self image, the construct of identity just to unlock one fundamental truth. That truth is simply the fact that as human beings, we are truly creative beings and create ourselves to be any character.
Now, this character, is it who we are?
Does it honour us and our creative life force?
Is this creation just an act to
Look good and survive?
Who are we really?
How do you know YOU are being authentically you?
All, I can say is, when this image was created in Camera and Carole saw it on the live view screen of my camera, she lit up like a Christmas Tree. What followed next was her realisation about how she felt about her self-expression and then she experienced her personal breakthrough.
Now, there are two stories in this image.
Carole will share hers.
I am sharing mine right now.
A Celebration of Women & Beauty Through Visual Imagery is much
more than a collection of image of women. This is about the conversation we have with ourselves about how we look, how we present ourselves to the world. This is about how we see ourselves, self image, it’s about self acceptance, self love, celebrating ourselves as a devine expression of the living force.
Who is Michael Vincent in all of this?
Who I am is the possibility of being a man and photographer that supports all women in experiencing their authentic beauty beyond the construct of their DNA.
I am the mirror of ERISED.
Any women who is courageous enough to participate in this project and conversation with me will experience me full of power, authentic conversation compassionate listening, provocative questions, heartfelt love, appreciation and expert photography that will unlock the truth and set you free.
My intention is to create an experience where all of the women in this project don’t recognise themselves and actually fall in love with themselves.❤️
I want to acknowledge Carole for engaging in this conversation. It was a beautiful dialogue and I got profound value for myself.
I hope she will share her point of view. It offers a lot of deep insight which I believe will offer hope and possibility to any woman who
comes across this post and image.
