“Quit Playing Yourself” by Holly Owen, a unique self-help book that combines multi-faceted advice with New Orleans street photography, has been released

Holly Owen’s “Quit Playing Yourself” has been released worldwide. This 150-page full-color art book features a collection of original New Orleans photographs paired with empowering quotes and life lessons focused on inner work and interpersonal relationships.

Avoiding clichés and outdated advice, the advice presented – fresh and genuine, direct and succinct – allows the reader to absorb the messages in a simple yet powerful way. In the same vein, the photographs focus on street art, the true essence of distinctive neighborhoods and the simple beauty of New Orleans.

The book itself grew out of the author’s own relationship struggles, which came to a head during the 2020 lockdown. She found herself out of work at the same time her relationship imploded, creating the perfect storm. She spent her new free time analyzing her relationship issues and exploring and photographing the desolate town.

One afternoon while out for a walk, she had an epiphany and started matching the quotes she was writing with the pictures she was taking. The project came to life and “Quit Playing Yourself” was born. Offering insight into the raw beauty of the historic city paired with insightful and thought-provoking advice, Owen’s creative approach can be enjoyed by people from all walks of life.

Touching on a wide range of topics including self-esteem, setting boundaries, self-compassion and partner selection, Owen takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride from pain and regret to healing and redemption. Skillfully composed, the book encourages readers to take responsibility for their choices and their lives, and to never settle for less than they deserve.
