Look Into My Eyes

Lisa Geiger's avatar Lisa Geiger Vote Code: 66550

My name is Lisa, i have dealt with deep suicidal tendencies for a while mostly due to the fact i have PTSD, a branch of it is called D.I.D. a scary mental disorder i wasn't born with or didn't ask for, I was someones victim. Three weeks after a serious attempt on my life i choose to handle my pain in a more positive way with the tools that i had that would stop bringing me self harm . I went on the streets, sat downtown and just talked to people, I found out I am not alone. Listening to their stories I photographed certain Origins, The eyes in this picture have been raped, beaten , molested as children, victims of war, domestic abuse, forced into prostitution, and so on. I am just an amateur photographer who wants to show my feelings and express the pain and darkness I feel inside of me as well as others in our society. What I hope to gain from this print, is to at least spread the importance of mental health and the ever lasting damage that abuse can cause to so many innocent lives.
