When Zhenya from Being Zhenya came to us with the idea of incorporating glitter into a photoshoot, we wanted to do something different. Although glitter is often seen for its unicorn-like qualities, we wanted to do something that was opposite of unicorns: darkness.
We wanted to juxtapose the glitter with darkness to represent the mask we all sometimes put on. Although we may cover ourselves with things that are happy on the outside, that doesn't always reflect how we're feeling on the inside. With that being said, it's also clear that this brightness can also be further illuminated in the dark.
