The world does not revolve around us. We are reminded of this every day as we interact with countless other beings and engage in the various workings of the world. When we’re so focused on contributing to something greater, what we do for ourselves can seem irrelevant or meaningless, and feel unproductive. However, sometimes we have to remind ourselves that we are allowed to be the center of our own universe. We owe ourselves more than letting other people or our relationships dictate what we do. It’s important to connect with yourself and discover who you are as a person.

Centered around a girl searching for a guide on her journey, this series conveys the concept of a search to find what it means to revolve around oneself. Initially, she looks and reaches towards various objects, including the Sun, the center of our Solar System, for guidance.  Eventually, however, she realizes that she’s been looking in the wrong place all along and looks within to guide herself. This is depicted when she blocks out the Sun in the last photo.

Others come and go. You are the only constant in your journey. It’s up to you to guide yourself through every storm and surpass every obstacle in your way to beat the odds and reach the shore. Start looking to yourself for the answers and start a revolution within.

“I’ll walk where my own nature would be leading. It vexes me to choose another guide.” - Emily Brontë
