As a child i was taught to keep my mouth shut, my feelings were not validated. I kept my abuse a secret. The keeping of this sick secret seeped into my soul like poison. So i learned very young, how to create a pretty little facade, to hide behind it and pretend everything was okay.

As a society, i believe we are only as sick as our secrets. As an adult i seek to do the opposite, to tear down the facade and expose the truth.

Self-portrait shot using a digital camera and remote controlled shutter release. Then portrait was modified in Adobe Photoshop. Styling and make-up also created by Jaeda DeWalt.

This image is also available as a t-shirt and more:

I’m a self-taught photographic artist. My art explores my
internal landscapes, wherein, i explore; survivor issues, spirituality and sexuality. Much of my work is comprised of self-portraits. My intent with my creations is to be one of the connecting threads in the universal fabric we share.
