Finding yourself is not a year or two. There, on the way, we are all vulnerable, we keep aloof, our eyes seem blank. But this story is not about weakness, but vice versa. It's about development. And about the shooting of the photographer Veronica Azaryan.
“Tattoo diary is an essay project about our collective loneliness, about emotions and about a person at the moment of immersion in ourselves.
Each of us has a "mask" - the desired image of ourselves and for those around us. We have to put on and wear it every day, hiding our true desires and feelings.
And alone with yourself you can be vulnerable - there is nothing wrong with that. And it is art that can allow a person to get closer to his own "I" through the limitations and norms. It encourages self-presentation, includes reflection and leads to the realization of a person's need to transform reality through himself. Relieves fear and allows you to romanticize your creation. Instead of alarming, disorderly self-digging, there is a gradual study of each line of an as yet undeveloped image.
The final photo reflects the concept of a random shot - warm light and “unexpected” shadows simulate a home atmosphere. Crop shots and closeups also convey the intimacy of the self-discovery process.
And we imitated children's drawings with colored tattoos, water-soluble markers, face painting, eyeliner and lip liner."
