This is my 1st piece in my Female Strife Series. This series is an artistic exploration of the various struggles faced by women around the world using abstract and conceptual photomanipulation to manifest the emotional and physical pain of these afflictions of the soul & incorporating nude models to express the vulnerability and simple strength of womanhood in adversity. (Note: Although these struggles are not necessarily restricted to women, this project focuses exclusively on the female experience and perspective.)

This piece was inspired by the feeling of severe and crippling depression, when one feels broken and alone.
