Solipsism

I've been extremely intrigued with the idea of solipsism lately, the "view or theory that the self is all that can be known to exist". Solipsism is the belief that reality and the world around you are representations of the individual and has no existence of their own and might not even exist.

There are times in my life where I feel like I am floating through a dream, walking through someone else's reality, which is probably why I've become so interested in the theory of Solipsism. 

Here are some images that play with that idea, modeled by Louis wearing clothes from Red Light Vintage.

I was able to grow up at the beach, in the ocean and surrounded by unimaginable amounts of beauty.
