This series I named Bandage Portraits. It is meant to explore the state of emotional destruction and resilience. It is so easy to be ignorant to your own feelings even though you are aware of them.

I believe that every single person (if not most people) has their own stories that forces them to bring out strong feelings and I wanted to photograph them to show how beautiful those emotions are and that it is okay to express them.

An emotion that is so raw; whether it is sheer happiness or an uncontrollable anger, is something I consider a very beautiful feature that we humans have. There is nothing artificial about it. They are never wrong. As you get older, you see more things that you did not see before and, little by little, one comes to understand why these emotions happen. Not allowing your emotions to control you can make you stronger otherwise you may end up feeling stuck in a pit hole when you don’t.” [Official Website]
