Do Not Enter

Photo taken by contributor Carrie Hilgert, a 36-year-old photographer and 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: “During my depression, sleep seemed to be my only escape.

  1. I relate, there are/were days when I couldn’t wait for sleep. Sleep shut my mind down, gave me some hours to rest and not think about the dark place I was in. Thank you for sharing.
