Lucas Baron

Lucas Baron believes that making one’s own identity is the most beautiful thing that goes unrecognized by many people, simply because many do not realize that identity is essential to life. Sometimes people adopt labels or choose not to be labeled; the key, to Baron, is that they are able to construct their own identity, to show who they are. Body shape can be part of identity, too; some people are big or thin, but are still beautiful. In Baron’s photos, the water is like a closet; some prefer to hide their identity within it and not allow others to know their true identity, but the flowers in the water still show the subject’s beauty as themselves.
