Monthly Self Portrait Project#P52radness

Oh what joy it gives me to be blogging this series again, these submissions are from June. and, even though I haven’t been blogging them the project is still going strong, and I promise to catch up because this project is LIFE. I do not exaggerate when I say that.

My thoughts often circle around how vulnerable women can be, how much it takes to type out the words in our head. To put ourselves out there for all to see, for all to judge, and for all to essentially gawk at. The photographs show only one side of us at a time, and most of us want to scream at the fact that we are more than one photo can share.

& I think that essentially what has drawn me to this project. It has honestly liberated other facets of myself. I look forward to writing more on this in the future + inviting the other ladies in the group to share their words with us.

 

words by Adri De La Cruz

 

She comes to presence
in a great wave of grief
that has no bottom.

{water cannot swim}

Feeling the unbearable
weight of womanhood
tearing me open,
revealing my own sorrows.

{a channel of life}
