An End and A Beginning

Photo taken by contributor Carrie Hilgert, a 36-year-old photographer and self-portrait artist from Northeast Kansas. After venturing into digital photography, she became interested in documenting her life with self portraits. This became particularly helpful when her life started to fall apart due to depression. All her other creative outlets left her, but she could always process her very dark feelings with self portraits. While she is doing much better now, she maintains compassion for those going through these hard things and hopes that her photography can give an honest insight into something that makes most people feel very isolated and alone.

About this photo: “I took this photograph when I was getting near the end of the divorce process and felt like nothing would ever be ok again...”

  1. Reminds me of how I feel today with my experience with help lines. I’m alone in the world, because nobody really cares-at least professionally. They act bored and sarcastic.
