The theme ‘Metamorphosis’ reminds me of how different both me and my friends have become after over a year of lockdown. The photograph highlights our reunion after months of being apart and showcases the change I saw in specifically my best friend – she was much more carefree and relaxed. Lockdown has forced most of us to adapt, many people finding out who they are or what suits them best, a lot of my friends emerging from lockdown as completely different people. I thought that butterfly imagery worked best for this concept, linking with metamorphosis and the idea of freedom and the beauty in transformation.
