From all of these feelings emerged The Monday Me project.
When I started the project in January of 2018, the premise was simple: Take one self-portrait each Monday for a whole year. What resulted, though, was the most personally meaningful project that I have ever done. The Monday Me allowed me to explore all of my emotions and roles and forced me to figure out an artistic way to portray them. Many Mondays I'd not feel like taking a portrait, but then I'd force myself to set the camera up and really think about how I was feeling that day and the mood I wanted in the photo, and it'd result in an incredible therapeutic release. I started sharing all the photos on my Instagram. I now look forward to each Monday and the few minutes I'll have to conceptualize the portrait and process my feelings.
