I feel a shift coming within my own self and the collective world.
Everything around me is pure energy and I connect with it in ways I didn’t know possible.
I feel insane at times and think “I have truly lost it” because now I see not only with my eyes but with my soul.
I see the beauty in everything and everyone, I am surprised each day and feel like a child looking at the world for the first time.
I’m in a constant state of realization about the love I feel for everyone in the world and I wish I could shine a light on every dark corner and bring a common peace and understanding to everyone.
I am BLESSED.
My life has been filled with many ups and downs which have brought me to this state I now live in.
I’m naive at times but I’m also aware of the sad realities of the world at large.
I no longer feel weighed down by all the ugliness and destruction, I see hope now, within my family, my friends and the world at large.
Love is Peace and Peace is Love. — By Dilia Oviedo-Luciano

Disclaimer: I do not approve of images I’ve made being used in pro-anorexia or pro-bulimia sites, my work has never been done with the idea of glorifying an unhealthy body image. The girls I photograph DO NOT have eating disorders.
Each of the beautiful individuals I have photographed have a body structure, metabolism and lifestyle which makes them have the physical appearance that they have.
I REPEAT! DO NOT USE MY IMAGES IN PRO-ANA OR PRO-MIA PROPAGANDA, IF YOU SEE ANY OF MY IMAGES IN THIS TYPE OF SITES, PLEASE LET ME KNOW SO I CAN HAVE THEM TAKEN DOWN!

Hamlet’s Soliloquy– Photographer Dilia Oviedo reunites with Wilhelmina model Francisco Peralta for a special series inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
"To be, or not to be, that is the question—Whether ‘tis Nobler in the mind to suffer, The Slings and Arrows of outrageous Fortune,
Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die, to sleep—
No more; and by a sleep, to say we end
The Heart-ache, and the thousand Natural shocks
That Flesh is heir to? ‘Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished.”
"To die, to sleep, To sleep, perchance to Dream; Aye, there’s the rub,
For in that sleep of death, what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause. There’s the respect
That makes Calamity of so long life:
For who would bear the Whips and Scorns of time,
The Oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s Contumely,
The pangs of despised Love, the Law’s delay,
The insolence of Office, and the Spurns
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
When he himself might his Quietus make
With a bare Bodkin? Who would these Fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life.”
"But that the dread of something after death, The undiscovered Country, from whose bourn, No Traveler returns, Puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have,
Than fly to others that we know not of.
Thus Conscience does make Cowards of us all,
And thus the Native hue of Resolution
Is sicklied o’er, with the pale cast of Thought,
And enterprises of great pitch and moment,
With this regard their Currents turn awry,
And lose the name of Action. Soft you now,
The fair Ophelia. Nymph, in all thy Orisons
Be thou all my sins remembered.”
