The definitions of Utopia & Eutopia ring off with sentiments of idealism.
"A place..." or "state in which..." suggests even the possibility of its existence. Of its... attainability.
However, the pursuit of either term is not without war... or sacrifice. Idealisms... shift and shape our "presentations" to the world. We camouflage the most honest pieces of who we truly are, what we truly feel, for the sake of blending in.
We sacrafice our truths, wrap them in "perfection" and call it real.
"Pieces" is the interruption of that perfection, the resistance of letting go & the surrender.

Bexx is a NY-rasied, LA-based photographer & director. "My work is intimate. I aim to capture people and life in a connective way; creating stories through the use of shadows, light play and composition. My photographs are conversations. Sometimes witty. Sometimes melancholy. Sometimes joyous. But always honest."
Bexx's background in Production Management evolved into a successful freelance predator and photography career. In 2020 & 2021, she served as Madam Vice President Kamala Harris' docu-videographer.
"'I draw most of my inspiration from film. How so much of a story can be translated in a single frame; a composition choice, lighting design or color."
