Gemma Smyth is of a Filipino background who found love in Photography since the birth of her firstborn. Being a shy lady from a beautiful island in the Philippines, she struggled to enjoy the good things the UK had to offer her and to be herself. Gemma is grateful to the UK for the opportunity to study, Make-Up, Nail Technology and most importantly Photography and be herself. This work is all about her reality. A self-portrait that describes how she embraced the changes through cosmetics and piercings, things that she never imagined doing when she was still in the Philippines. It is evident that she has overcome her shyness in these photographs being playful with the camera and the fabric.
