cry

I'm portraying myself in a very difficult moment of my life: i'm depressed and suicidal. My self-portraits are a direct reflection of my emotions, which I can't show in real life. My camera is my consolation and listens to me better than anyone else. I want to share the difficulties and loneliness I feel right now. I want to let you feel the pain and fear I feel, even if it's just a fraction. I want you to be with me in my situation so that I feel less alone.
