Please say a warm hello to first-time contributor Abrielle. As a young child she battled Selective Mutism, a disorder in which a child who is usually capable of speech can’t speak in certain social settings. It was a physical and metal struggle trying to find words to express herself. It wasn’t until recently, after the unexpected passing of her father, that she finally was able to find her voice through photography. Her photos represent the words that were held inside her for so long
About this photo: “As another outlet besides photography, I enjoy writing poetry. I had the idea to put my two outlets together in one photo, and here it is.”
