When I was making the black drink prop for this photoshoot... I was in tears. I was tired of comparisons, I was tired of how I was treated at work, I was tired of not being with people I love. The prop was poison. Just like in fairytales - sometimes even the good ones don’t wake up.
The creative take was that we all drink in the poison of social media, fake news, narcissism, and eventually it will destroy us.
That day I felt it. I wanted to express it so badly. I wanted others to see that no matter how successful we are - we still fall under poisonous scrutiny of everyone.
“It’s like you are drinking the poison”
But then I started my creative process. I made the perfectly coloured drink. I fixed my makeup, had to... after crying in the car on the way home, I set up my iPhone, and my timer.
As I held the glass, that I imaged as being full of poison, I felt the sun, the air, the rug, the Inner me. My soul quivered at the idea that people that don’t even know me can crush me.
They can’t. I know what love is. I know what kindness is. I experienced the magic of it all. I know what it is like to create life and to experience death. I know what positive thoughts and inspiration can do to someone’s everything. I know what it’s like to hold your hand and say so much without saying nothing. It’s magic. 🖤
✨Positivity is magic.
Don’t drink the poison. Find those that will feed you magic instead. That will refresh your creativity, will make you feel loved, will support you.
