ABOUT ROMANY FLOWER
For a long time in my life, I struggled with insecurity about how much of true myself I can really share to others. When I met people who accepted me for who I truly am, who actually loved me for all of my rough edges—for the perfect and imperfect parts of me, it was such a fain experience. Today, I strive to be the most authentic person I can be. I want to meet other people whom I can be unapologetically myself, and hereby creating a safe space for them to be themselves as well.
A good friend of mine once said, “It is not important what exactly you do but it is important that you do it with love. It doesn’t matter if you are sweeping the floor, if you are giving a speech, or if you are in front of thousands of people, the most important thing is that you are doing it with love no matter how big or small the task is.” This stuck with me and it inspired me to do everything with love. All the things I create—all my creations, carry my love, my essence, and my soul—they are extensions of me.
I feel passionate about a lot of topics in life. I am passionate about the environment, about human connection, about animals and living things, about freedom, equality and opportunity, and about love. This is why I chose to testify the existence of love through my images because it personifies the different forms of love our world is capable of giving just by simple taking a picture.
“The only constant in life is change.” — Heraclitus
Change is in the base of all that lives that is why I strive to challenge myself everyday. Everyday, I strive to do the things that scare me in order for me to grow, to love more fiercely, to be more open and to trust more.
I love travel and I love a good adventure not because it is always easy but because it is about meeting yourself in your limits and exceeding them. Adventures are what keep my life exciting and the people that I meet on every adventure. An adventure can be about challenging yourself, it can also be opening yourself up completely to a person, or starting a journey together with somebody. I think life is an adventure, and I’m so excited and grateful to be here.
