The Palm Shop
As a kid growing up in suburban Canada, I was obsessed with Hollywood. I watched so many movies and red carpet events—spending time with
Hollywood through the silver screen was all I ever wanted to do! Hollywood was calling my name—signaling me from a world away. My obsession
continued to flourish. In certain shots of iconic films, I latched eyes on the palm trees lining the streets of Los Angeles. They were towering beacons of hope—they became a symbol for who I wanted to become, and they symbolized the highest ideal I could imagine for myself at the time—to live in Hollywood!
That North Star kept me going—kept a fire in me. And the 5-story-high giants were a daily visual reminder of where I wanted to be and, ultimately, how I wanted to live. Palm trees were a way out. They gave me hope when nothing else did. They gave me a reason to work hard, do well in school, and talk about Hollywood like it was always right around the corner for me. Palm trees were my ladder and my lifeline.
For ten years, I've been capturing palm trees and sharing their hopeful silhouettes.To me, they'll always represent how truly capable we all are of
pursuing our dreams. Every chance I've had to photograph a palm tree has been an opportunity to reach one more person and hopefully remind them just how much they matter! For me, photographing palm trees is like photographing people, each one unique and different in their own special way—full of stories, life, and unending potential.
It's a beautiful thing to be different — to look different, have different ideas, opinions, dreams, and to view the world in your own unique way. So often, the world tries to tell us there's something wrong with being different. Like we're all supposed to look and act a certain way, or else we'll be looked at as strange or weird, but being different (being yourself) is what makes the world such a beautiful place!!
Since day one, I've been considered "weird," and I often felt like I didn't fit in or I wasn't "good enough" to belong. But those feelings were such a trap, and they only pushed me further from who I am. Society has a way of putting us in these stupid categories where you're either one thing or another, and if you don't fit into either, you're labeled as different, like it's a bad thing. Well, I'm proud to be different! I'm proud I don't fit in! And I'm proud I do things my own way because what used to make me feel different or "less than" is also what I've been embraced for the most in Los Angeles. Being yourself is what pays off the most in this world. So keep being you!

Limited Edition & Signature
Limited edition is a limited run of art prints that Kim Genevieve has numbered and signed, which means these are collectible pieces of affordable art. When an edition is sold out, it will no longer be available to purchase. Kim Genevieve signs and numbers all limited-edition art prints (on the bottom right side of the print, just below the image), and each limited-edition print comes with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.
