Past vs Present

by: Ariel Bussani


For this photoshoot, I wanted to focus on the idea of personal growth and the idea of changing and growing with yourself. I used a projector to portray the idea of my ‘younger self’ still carrying a voice in my present life. I’ve been learning to see change and new things not as a replacement of my old self, but as an extension of who I am becoming. As we move through life, we constantly have the opportunity to learn from ourselves and draw from the core of who we are, even if it feels like we lose ourselves sometimes. That bittersweet, youthfully reminiscent feeling is what I wanted to capture in this photoshoot of reflecting on my present relationship with my younger self.
