PRETTY FIRE: inward journey expressed outwardly

I AM A STORYTELLER; my creative pseudonym is PRETTY FIRE. In my heart there is FIRE and that which fire represents. The passion, the beauty, the danger of my flame. PRETTY FIRE explores the combustable unpredictable nature of fire. Fire as subtle as the flicker of a candle and as ravenous as an inferno. My passion; my warmth; my light; my energy. The elemental drive of fire. I FLICKER; I DANCE: I BLAZE; I FLASH; INFLAMED; I SMOLDER............I BURN. PRETTY FIRE: is the first in a year long series of concept photo shoots I am excited to share with the 50 Shades community. Where in I attempt to reconcile myself to my dark black skin, my kinky hair, my gender, my sexuality and my place within the context and history of the country and global landscape. My photo's reflect the truths of a real and raw woman of color in process. What I discover isn't always pretty but it is ALWAYS beautiful.
