étude de la petite vie

This world is filled with so many small things that nobody notices. Life is solely based on self with rare for instances of love and kindness towards others. There is a strange lacking in the appreciation of little things and of things that mean so much and create so much beauty. They are ignored. Crushed. Swept away for the shiny bright shallowness of the self and how many likes and notices a person can get on a screen.

There is a quiet peace and wholeness when one sees past the facade of “importance”. What is important to you? Find what is true and real. Most of the time it lies in what is not apparent. Be yourself and embrace what makes you who you are. Put others first and yourself last. Don’t look to others to “save” you, but rather look inward for that.

I took these photographs to clear my mind and to shed some focus on small plant life that usually gets crushed beneath feet, or cut down and thrown away. I want to show that there is beauty in small things and I’m leaving these photos up for personal interpretation.
