Keeping The Feelings In

Please offer a warm welcome first-time contributor Zoe, a 14-year-old second generation Broken Light Collective contributor. Zoe has experienced ADD and periods of mild depression. She became interested in photography in 2012. Zoe mostly uses herself as her model and takes self portraits to express feelings or concepts that she wants to communicate. Photography is one coping mechanism she uses during challenging times. She is also interested in drawing and other art forms.

About this photo: “This photograph represents feelings of vulnerability. I am covering my mouth because I don’t want to say anything about my struggles. I don’t want people to know that I have problems, because it might make me look weak, or vulnerable. So, I keep most feelings of strong emotion to myself.
