About this photo: “The model in this photo is a fashion-forward friend I met out and about shooting. I love the contrast between “Je m’aime” (I love myself in French) and the scraggly nails. I relate to this photo as a person who struggles with the strains and contrasts brought on by Bipolar disorder and ADD. I also treat patients who struggle with these and related issues as well. In my photography, I seem to be drawn to subjects who struggle with mental illness or “differentness”….they color my world.
I have a message to Broken Light friends: LOVE YOURSELF: Get good solid help both therapeutically and medically-it makes a difference.”
