My Body Is A Cage by NanaPHOTOGRAPHY My Body Is A Cage by NanaPHOTOGRAPHY
5. August 2011

that keeps me from dancing with the one I love, but my mind holds the key!

I heard this in a song some month ago and I couldn't get that line out of my head. This line bothered me since weeks now and I often thought about what it means to me personally. After some sleepless nights and bad dreams, I finally realized its meaning to me. The people, who know me since years now, are aware that I'm really shy the first time I meet someone new. I need some time to warm up before I let someone see inside. I think this my way to protect the most valuable article I have in store: my heart. But when I knew someone better, I open myself completely and would do anything for a good friend. Maybe that is the reason why I got hurt that often in the past… I trusted people too fast and got hurt afterwards. So now I shared something really personal with you! This is the reason why it takes more time to win my trust and so I see my body as a cage sometimes. But I think: better save than sorry.

This knowledge made me think about a new photography project and I came to the conclusion that I need a new perspective in my art. I decided to start a series. This series is called 'Fears' and will include photography about personal fears as well as fears from other persons. Maybe I'll also shoot with models, but that depends on the idea and if the fear is personal or not. So you can be curious what will come next...
