Star Dust: Photos by Molly Strohl
Photos shot from prints while shining a flashlight through the poked holes to make them appear like stars.
It is often an unrecognized fact that humans are made of the same matter and atoms as stars. Our fragile human bodies are so much more connected with the universe than we commonly believe ourselves to be, and I want to re-establish that connection with Star Dust. I had originally intended the series to be fashion driven, but as soon as I started taking photos, it was clear that the emotion was more important to me than the clothes. I also chose to shoot the images indoors because I wanted to capture the subtle haunting feeling of being closed off from the world.
