My Vision of Peace
This image is a self-portrait with themes around self-acceptance, self-realization, and self-responsibility. I believe peace begins inside each of us. As I make peace with myself, I model to the world how peace is possible. Looking into the world through the lens of myself, I see reflected back to me all the ways I could be, the potential I have for violence as well as peace. Making peace requires a commitment first to myself; to continue choosing peaceful actions while having compassion for those who have chosen and still choose violence. I choose to embody peace without condemning those whom I experience as "non-peaceful."


Medium
Using my own hi-res digital photographs, I created the image in Photoshop, merging multiple images for both tangible scene elements and lighting effects.
