Bare in the Woods

Photo taken by contributor Kait Mauro, a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native in her twenties who has lived all over the country. Kait’s primary diagnosis recently changed from Major Depression to Bipolar Disorder. She has also struggled with anxiety and disordered eating. She is currently an undergraduate at Washington University in Saint Louis where she studies Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies and Creative Writing. Her primary mediums are poetry and photography, though she has also been known to dabble in printmaking and other genres of writing. She seeks to understand her experiences and to connect with others through her art.

About this photo: “I took this self portrait in the woods while it was still warm here in Missouri. I just woke up and needed to MAKE something and since I had no available models that day, I photographed myself.

    This is a pretty picture. I like that you did this in the woods with your tattoo showing as it brings you into the woods even more, the bird, the woods, nature has become a part of you.

    Well done!
