While being depressed, I felt like I was dying but my body just did not give up. I used my body to express my self-hate by cutting, burning, overdosing and ultimately trying to kill it. I hated that my body was strong, but in the end that saved my life.

I'm at the point now, that I feel a strong, instinctive love towards my body. Like a mother, I'm protecting a child. A child that has gone through a lot. Despite the fact that old thoughts and feelings sometimes find a way back through my mind, especially at night, I am extremely proud of my body. My way to express this new and nuanced situation, is through the photographic language of the self-portrait.
