Project: "Balloon Warrior"
Photographer: Geneva Z. Bailey
Project Details: I’ve always been afraid of balloons. I know, it sounds crazy, but it’s a long story (and also a real thing- check out “globophobia”). I was about to embark on a solo journey halfway across the country and I needed a major self esteem boost. I was also studying for my black belt in Kung Fu. I had the idea to take some of my (not at all sharp) Kung Fu weapons and burst some balloons. My photographer wanted to capture the moment. However, the weather, light, weapons, atmosphere, were all so perfect we decided to turn it into a full-on photo shoot!
