“HAPPINESS IS" is a series of photos staring a vintage fair prize stuffed banana with face, flower and the words “HAPPINESS IS”. This series of photos were taken while I was pregnant; whenever I organically came across something yellow I would take a pic. It whimsically tells the story of a banana looking for commonalities in the world around it. It was fun way for me to think about how people find their “tribe". I like how the banana has the words “HAPPINESS IS”, because finding happiness is bananas; silly, quirky, found in nature and is finding peace in ones-self and finding others to relate to along the way.
