Through the years my love for true, honest art has grown and grown. I love it when artists dare to share their deepest secrets and show their darkest emotions. Dana Borbely, a photographer from Oshawa, Canada, is one of those artists. Her work is raw, pure and incredibly dark: showing portraits ranging from melancholic, dreamy states to tough moments of self-harm. Dana’s work has a deep connection with nature, sharing the bonds we as humans tend to forget in this age of technology. There’s a lot of vulnerability in these pieces, yet being able to open your heart to art like this is a step that takes a lot of guts.
