Bamboo Bound

by Leesha Lou (photographer Murat Ozkasimm)

“This mono image portrays so many of my emotions, thoughts and feelings.
It displays my submissive side, it conveys a turmoil mix of emotions; strength but also vulnerability; being trapped in a new body…
The Muslin hood is like a metaphor for how I sometimes view myself in the mirror. I see my reflection, but it’s not me. I see a version of me, but all hazy.”
