From my ongoing series Portraits of People, Shed My Skin examines self-image, identity, transformation, and the essence of who we are as human beings. The series aims to not just discover one another, but more so, to show the connections that exist between us all.
Model Erika de Jesus: "It's scary to see people preaching hate in the name of religion. I once cried in church when someone said we should be careful buying clothes because we could be supporting a gay business. I'm not an emotional person, but I started to cry."
Her work is melancholic, full of symbolisms, and always hopeful in illustrating that as humans we have the capacity and strength to overcome our fears and obstacles while gaining from them the will to live life to its full potential.
Cardin works primarily in self-portraiture to illustrate scenes that bewitch and explore our human sensibilities through abstract stories with a visual dialogue between the subject and the artist created through harmonic gestures and magnetic artistry.
