Confidence is a feeling of self-assurance of one's own abilities or qualities. Lack of confidence is a hurdle everyone should conquer. There is a rise and there is a fall to overcoming fears. The fears could be large or miniscule but the amount of confidence gained from a fight is the same. To become confident is to become comfortable with vulnerability.
Vulnerability is being susceptible to physical or emotional attack and nude self-portraits are the best form of this type of expression. Exposing oneself in front of a camera is exposing one's true self. It is letting the viewer in to uncover secrets and emotions.
The intention of this body of work is a way of coping with these fears and vulnerability, which in turn elicits hidden emotions from the viewer.
