2021 / Fine Art / Portrait (Non-Pro)

Journey Into Thyself

  • Photographer
    Gala Semenova

While working on this series of self-portraits I spent a lot of time with myself, contemplating and questioning different aspects of my life, particularly the rules and boundaries I set for myself. A key part of my process involves inquiry and reflection. Could I truly confront myself, even the darkest parts, and remain unbiased? My portraits express an introspection not only as an individual, but as a collective female consciousness, in which I discovered a lot of pain, sorrow, and guilt. I also found inside myself is a beautiful flower, soft and beautiful. It was vulnerable, it was fragile.
