About these photos: “This is a series of self portraits that I took during a time when I was very upset. I’m glad I thought to grab my iPhone and capture my raw emotion in that present moment. I am always smiling in pictures, but I am not always smiling inside. These photos give a more accurate picture of how I feel a lot of the time.“
