GINA

This project was an outlet, born out of frustration for not having always been so open about myself and from not having the knowledge on how to ease the anxiety I lived with and the pressures around me I had at 13. In retrospect of this projection, I could witness the growth I have experienced in my life into a visual form and saw myself in the ways I didn't have the knowledge to do when I was younger. Making myself miserable day after day, Gina didn’t seem to embody any of those self-deprecating traits I had then and I wanted to give my 13 year old self another chance, through this portal I gave myself the visual narrative I wish I had exuded then, with the help of Gina’s confidence, I immortalised a fantasy version of my 13 year old self I wish I could’ve given me then.

GINA was shortlisted for British Vogue Talent 2018
