Artist's Description

So I thought I would try something a bit different to my usual photographic stuff with this one. My other stuff don’t really have a specific meaning, they are just there to look nice. This is different.
I think pretty much every person goes through a state of mind where you knock yourself down, do stupid stuff, and basically hate the person you are. For some people it only lasts a day, others have a continuous problem with it.
I know people that have either self harmed or spoken about doing more serious things, and it is just down to self loathing. They hate the person they have become and just want to destroy their new image.

‘The Essence of Self Loathing’ is destroying your image, your personality, the person you are.

My mother wont be happy with this photograph just due to the fact I did this out of rage which has resulted in a large knife wound in the wall. I was angry, so stuck the photograph of myself on the wall (5 photos cost £5!!!) and just stabbed it.
I think it really helped because I was calmer after that.
I just wanted to share this with you all :)
