Conflicted

This photo was part of a personal project called Quite Honestly which is my attempt to combat the perfection perception of social media. The project consists of personal stories of life's struggles paired with a photo depicting that experience. This photo is telling the story of a woman in the midst of learning why she is suddenly experiencing gran mal seizures which has robbed her of her independence. The entire series can be found at wendyvonsosen.com/quite-honestly
