A series of very personal, vulnerable, honest and sometimes sarcastic self portraits portraying feelings and thoughts that have occurred in the process of dealing with my ‘moments of darkness’.

In this series of self portraits I use lyrics to convey a message or express a feeling or a thought. My mind often feels like a lyrics database and I try to make use of that by linking lyrics to my photographs to help tell my story.

I know for sure that many others experience similar feelings and thoughts so if this series leaves you with questions or a need to talk, please feel free to contact me. I appreciate it.
