Sydney Barcia steps in front of our lens wearing vintage Acacia. She is shy, almost not believing the beauty that could be created simply from a camera and a girl. Having stepped into this world of fashion, unphased by her inherited beauty, she is mere moments from realizing the attraction she commands. She beckons. Not for recognition, but rather, for acceptance as we all do. And today, surrounded by a mosaic of stone, she begins her journey. Meet Sydney.
