To me, this is a really important portrait. The relationship with my father has never been easy. The relationship I have with him represents fear, anger, disappointment and regret. After years of these emotions eating away at my soul, I told myself I would no longer live by the rules that fear had created for me. I was no longer going to avoid or make unjust decisions around him. I was going to see him this day and I wanted to document my fierce poise as I was headed to battle not knowing how I was going to come out on the other side. This photo is a landmark for all those who have faced fear.
