Pure Passion combines fashion and wildlife in a high contrast image. The strategic placement of the vibrant flowers and tigers blend them into the greyscale outfit. They enhance the coy and subtle sensual pose of the model. The image combines symbolism often associated with passionate and strong emotions. Orange flowers often reference a sunny and warm climate. However, metaphorically they can reference happiness, fascination, and determination. Additionally, tigers allude to strength and fearlessness. The analog collage creates a literal representation of its title.
“I am seeking, I am striving, I am in it with all my heart.”
-Vincent Van Gogh⠀⠀
