Through constructed studio self-portraits I use Photo Therapy to explore and express dark emotions resulting from a difficult childhood. Now as an adult I still live with the harsh shadows of depression and anxiety but instead of denying my dark emotions I embrace them through photography allowing these overwhelming feelings to inspire me creatively, using it as a form of therapy, where life and art have entwined themselves. Not all trauma in life leaves physical marks on the body, with hurt or damage being mentally invisible. These images represent inner trauma.
