"Bound is a series of images based on a dream I woke from late last year. A single figure sits poised, wrapped tightly in bandages with a constrictive stocking mask. Two bright yellow pom-poms adorn her shoulders as she sits, sullen, surrounded by pink. Her silhouette and the way she sits resemble paintings of medieval queens or aristocracy. I put together a small team to try to bring this dream to life and through our planning and discussions we found symbols and themes of female identity and conflict between external and internal selves. The final image where Nina rips off her mask was improvised and caught on camera but I feel a fitting way to conclude the series."
