“We don’t drown by falling in the water;

you drown by staying there.”

-Edwin Louis Cole

This is the very last installment of our 4 part editorial series title, “WITHIN.”  We called this mini collection, “sink.” because it’s a great metaphor for how some of our emotions and thoughts can overwhelm us; and can make us feel like we are drowning and helpless when in reality we can take control.

-Michael Jordan

This is the 3rd mini collection of photos from our, “WITHIN.” series.  A series that explores our darker inner emotions.. sometimes emotions and thoughts that we can find difficult to discuss with even the closest of friends and families.  We chose the title, “fear.” because now a days we can sometimes feel limited in the things we can accomplish because of the color of our skin, gender, race, social status, sexual orientation, etc..  This can hinder us from reaching our full potential.  Society can create illusions that can hold us back;  these are the things that we should not let change us or fear who we are inside.

” We have the choice of two identities. The external mask which seems to be real…. and the hidden, inner person who seems to us to be nothing. “

– Thomas Merton

This mini collection is called, ” mask.” because at times, whether we realize it or not, EVERYONE  can feel like they have to cover their true identities to fit into what society says is ideal. We admire celebrities, models and socialites because we think that they have it all. But in reality we are all different. We cannot be molded into just one type. We need to embrace our differences and know that we are all beautiful in our own way.

“bind.” (part of “WITHIN.” series by BeMoreMEdia)

“We are not trapped by our thoughts.

What we generally do, however, is create thoughts that trap us.”

– Joshua David Stone

This past summer, we decided to do another editorial series.  This time, we wanted a darker, edgier, and more emotional look.  We decided to do a series called “WITHIN.” and these pictures are a part of a mini collection that make up the series.

This mini collection is called, “bind.” because we are often trapped within ourselves by emotions that we sometimes create;  and those can be the toughest kind of binds to break away from.

Society dictates what is right and wrong and can often limit us on what we want to say, feel or do.
