Photo taken by contributor Debora Vernagallo, a 30 year old from Italy who spent her teens living with dissociative episodes. At the age of 30, she has published her first book, “Si vive solo due volte” (in English, “Life Is Only Twice”), and she discovered photography as a powerful tool for self-therapy. Above all, photography has allowed her to feel, and see herself when she is not able to.
About this image: “This photo shows in how many different ways I can be blown away in just… few seconds. Sometimes it seems like my body’s melting and has no substance, yet sometimes it feels more like being scratched from the inside, as if like my overlays would fall off and I just turn numb. All off a sudden, I’m blank. That’s what this capture is about.”
