The lotus flower symbolizes rising from a dark place into beauty and rebirth, as this is exactly how a lotus flower grows. Lotus flowers grow directly out of muddy and murky waters and produce beautiful white and pink blossoms.
I have created an experimental series exploring themes of feminizing the male form. The male models are symbolic of the flower, growing up out of the gloomy waters, surfacing as a beautiful lotus. Presenting the male models in their pure and natural form, inspired by themes of redefining the boundaries of what is traditionally seen as masculine.
