My name is Rockie Nolan. I am a twenty-two year old girl from a tumbleweed town in Texas. I am a photographer with a love for stories. There was a time when I didn't understand the point of fashion photography. It once felt very distant to me because it seemed impossible to relate to as a girl from such a small town who could never dream of adorning herself in such expensive things. When I discovered the possibilites for storytelling that fashion photography offers, it transformed all of these models who felt so distant, so above me, into characters. When I stopped viewing models as some reality I was unable to reach but rather as depictions of characters, fashion no longer felt superficial but rather analogous to my own thoughts.
I enjoy dressing up as a way to personally take on different characters. I can feel my personality and mood often shifting based on what I wear. I am a girl with one thousand dreams and though some of them will most likely never be fulfilled, I feel fortunate to be able to pretend either by the characters I dress up as or the characters made for photographs. This blog serves as a scrapbook to share both endeavors (as well as the dreams which manage to be fulfilled beyond playing pretend).
