My interests in photography have turned towards capturing a delicate moment or an intimate state. I admire the fragility of a fragment of time suspended. In this body of work I explore my relationship with Trichotillomania, an uncontrollable compulsion to pull out oneís hair. In the work I look at my personal struggles but also at the idea that there is beauty in imperfection. By embracing the concept of Kintsukuroi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold lacquer, I attempt to beautify what I originally viewed as ugly and photograph myself at my most vulnerable. Through this work I hope to recover my self-acceptance as well as encourage others not to hide from this disorder.
