Deconstructed Beauty

There was a morning when the word deconstructed popped into my mind, followed by the word beauty. I wasn’t aware of Jacques Derrida’s work of Grammatology (1967) that introduced the ideas of deconstruction. And I certainly wasn’t aware that deconstruction could be used to describe a critical outlook between text and meaning. In that moment, in the morning I was only thinking of two words that flowed into larger thoughts, with images of an alleyway, coldness, walls with rust, texture, and of graffiti.

I wanted to explore unlikely places, and use the surroundings of ageing buildings as the perfect backdrop to take photos of a place that my mind associated with deconstruction. And in doing so, I found hidden beauty in the natural lighting and colours that connected, even with my choice of outfit. In some images that show a building with blue paint chipped walls, I’m reminded of a small fishing village. Which makes sense since I live in a place known for water, particularly rain, lakes, and the pacific ocean.

I wanted to incorporate grunge elements, as seen in the surroundings and in my outfit choice. While melding together a look with both feminine and masculine elements. Masculine in the attitude, and feminine in the details, while both elements filtered into my poses and posture.
