Perth. by hoisthecolours Perth. by hoisthecolours
Iʼm tearing up, across your face
Move dust through the light
To find your name
It's something faint
This is not a place
Not yet awake, I'm raised of wake.

I'm halfway through this project! I haven't been on time, but I've made it.

I've had an incredible start to 2013. I rang it in with my best friends at college and it was simply magical. So I wanted to create a photo just as dreamlike as that night because I fully believe 2013 is going to be good to me. I tend to reflect, a lot, (what can I say, I used to want to be a writer....) but I did learn a lot about myself in 2012 and it's time I kick my butt into gear and take control of my life and careers. Lately, music has meant quite a bit to me in regards to this. I really love the explanation that Justin Vernon gave to his songs Perth and Beth/Rest, both of which mean a whole to me:

'"Perth' is this awakening or this birth. And to relate it to some of the conversation we've been having, it's sort of that moment when you have decided to wake up and take control."

I never would have thought I could tackle this sort of concept and make it realistic enough. But I like this. No outside inspiration really, it's very me and I think that's why I'm rather proud of it. As much as I adore dark art, I feel like most of my photos have been rather light, airy and vibrantly colored. I guess I tend to photograph and edit brighter, lightheartedly, with a positive feel to make up for every time bad news came my way the past year. Then again that's what photography's like for me. A magical escape, where anything from dreams can become reality. A new world.

Quick editing video here! I also got really bored the night before and made a short video here documenting my workshop with Brooke Shaden over the summer.

I absolute love the colouring, the movement of hair and the expression on her face. A true masterpiece!

Perth may be my favorite Bon Iver song. I want to walk down the isle to that song. Very lovely photo.
