Portraits: Hannah

Hair, Make-up, and Photography: Elisa Aquino / Modeling: Hannah To

Writing about God has been so difficult for me lately. The universe seems so dark and unforgiving. It takes so much courage to make sense of grace. Photography lends a hand during these trying times. When I don’t want to think, and when I feel the need to escape from reality, it takes me back – no matter how long I’ve abandoned it. There are days when I tell myself that I shouldn’t be taking photographs – more so, have it as my bread and butter – I am bad, I am not enough, I could never be someone I’m proud of. Then, there are these strange, unforgettable nights when I’m so certain that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.
