My photos document the expectation of a birthday from youth culture perspective but also how I would want my birthday to be celebrated every year. This year the subject of change has influenced my life and changed my perspective of birthdays overall. Loosing family members and friendship groups birthdays from the past aren’t the same as they used to be. These images I have created an expression of my emotion towards a birthday having props of Barbie dolls to represent fake friends and alcohol to indicate celebration of the day. These images I have created helped me come to terms with what I have lost helping me express my emotions and frustration of birthdays creating my perfect ideal birthday for myself throughout my photography.
