to start with, the idea of this has been in my mind for quite some time, ever since i saw this [link]
it made such an impact on me...i was astonished and sad...
so i wanted to say something about the subject, about the pain, using her powerful words. i've cut myself back in the days so i remotely know the feelings here.
this is in photography because i only added the brushes. another pathetic try yes...i'm not sure if it was better without? i have no idea whose are they so if u recognize yours, let me know, i'll credit you.
the huge amount of contrast and saturation fucked up the colors and all making it look less real than it was, esp. on the darker right side. but the lights are just harsh like life.
!i hope it is pretty damn clear that i don't support anyone cutting themselves. i feel empathy and sadness cos i've been there. i wanted to express that and lots of other things. the viewer is allowed to disagree on...everything, this is my freedom of expression
