The Eden Project (2017 - …)

“Embrace it. It’s yours to own.”

- Laura Bierens

“The Eden Project” is a deeply personal series to me - which was born out of both frustration on how almost all of the sensual and erotic images only touched on a certain visual aspect of femininity and boudoir photography touched on another. I just felt there was so much more to be captured about it yet I couldn’t find that anywhere. That kind of frustration sparked an interest to try it myself and once I felt comfortable enough with my skills I decided to pursue this spark of a dream. I wondered if it would feel different if I - as a heterosexual woman - would capture something as intimate yet natural as a woman her sexuality without actually putting her in a setting we are familiar to see as sensual.
