An editorial inspired by traveling to Cuba. This series, shot in the Cuban neighborhood of Little Havana, captures the model as a wanderer experiencing the vibrant atmosphere.
"This story was inspired by it's title, "Bloomed" and my hopes to show the visual expression of delicate transition. I wanted to capture the process of coming undone by shaping the body in a way that embraces the garments as though each piece is an extension of the model, and then by adding movement, depict the concept of blooming out of one’s own skin. It isn't always easy to shed our layers, to open up, to be vulnerable. "Bloomed" is a visual conversation of that process."
