Henry Miller and Anais Nin were lovers, and if they had a lovechild that would be me, Ava Sol. I find both of their expansive personalities fascinating – so similar, yet unique in their own ways. They expressed what was within them through words, and I have been doing it through self portraits. This collection is a dialogue between Henry’s poetic and mine, his quotes complimenting my images and/or vice versa.
Feminine and masculine meet, harmonize, complete. To get a better feel of Henry, watch his “Bathroom Monologue” on YouTube – how could you not want to be friends with him? 🙂 He was curious about so many things and not afraid to explore them with an open mind. Like Anais – both free souls being themselves.
Enjoy the meeting of my self explorations/portraits (taken anywhere between 2011 and 2021) and his quotes as 1/1 NFTs. Because I have to take him into the future with me, too.
