Photography was honestly something I was always interested in. I grew up with cameras and camcorders around the house so it became my go-to pastime. When we were kids, playing with my siblings usually involved us making little home movies that we all wrote, directed, shot, acted in, and edited.
One of the first images that really stuck out to me was this photo
by Ryan McGinley that I saw on Tumblr when I was 14 or so. It was a black and white photo of a naked lady with all of her body hair, holding a wolf around her neck. It was a big moment for me because all of the imagery I grew up seeing was this unattainable standard of a perfectly shaved, hairless, thin, white, blonde-haired woman and that photo made me realise it can be so much more than that.
