The story of Rob Woodcox definitely moved us with its power and beauty. It’s a story we were introduced to through a series of stunning images that depict the young photographer struggling through surreal situations, in which he is met with his fears and hopes. This is the way Woodcox chose to tell a very important story of his life; the story of his coming-out.
“Over the course of the last two years following my personal coming out experience, I created a series of images to portray the deep emotions I felt while coping with my newly discovered sense of identity.At first it felt like I was isolated in a vast and unforgiving world but I quickly realized being true to the core is the most freeing thing I can do to start truly witnessing beauty,” explains Woodcox.
