About 4 years ago, I started taking photos of myself when I was crying. At first it interfered. I would stop crying, or cry less hard. But once I got used to it, now I can cry even more deeply when I'm photographing myself, because when I go back and look at the photos later, I can see how intensely beautiful I am when I'm experiencing this depth of emotion. So, taking the photos reminds me in that moment of crying that I'm not going to get stuck there, and that it's beautiful to be able to feel that deeply. Here's a selection of my cry baby photos. Some are from heartbreak, bodybreak, worldbreak, and some there didn't seem to be any particular reason - i was just crying.
