"Miss Universe" is a contemporary photography series that uses contrast and contradiction to explore female identity. The centerpiece of each photo is a serene female face caught in a turbulent mixture of color and shape. In the midst of chaos, she remains defiant, using her inner strength to power through darkness and pain and come out the other side reborn, blooming in full color. We are left with the ultimate contradiction that through vulnerability we find strength.
This metamorphosis is reflected in the video as the artist explores the depths of self discovery- going through a portal into her creative universe.
