Photos by contributor Patrycja Marciniak, a 24-year-old graphic designer, artist, and photographer from Poland who has struggled with depression, anxiety, and dermatillomania, the urge to scratch and pick at one’s skin.
About these photos: “A weird and disturbing trend has occured recently on social media – people who think that depression is something glamorous, tragically beautiful, desirable, a condition to boast about. By replacing tears with cliché pink glitter, I created a comment on the topic. Depression is not something that should be romanticized, because no matter how beautiful you think something looks, it still hurts inside.”
