I wanted to do a series that was personal and documented everyday. It took me awhile to think of something, until I decided to track one of my nervous ticks. I have a tendency to pick at my lips when nervous, bored, anxious, uncomfortable, and so on. This leaves them raw, peeling, or even bleeding by the end of the day. My series will be a picture of my lips, everyday, before sleep or at a certain time towards the end of the day. It will be a zoomed in shot of my lips, with my hair up and out of the way of the picture, on a white background. I am looking for a cold and sterile feeling to the pictures to contrast the bright reds and pinks of cut up lips. My idea is that our mouths are very important for communication, as that every word we say falls from them. Some are soft and kind, others are rigid and tough and they say a lot about us without even speaking. I am not sure how it will come out, but I am excited to just work on it and expand it more if possible.
