Heather Corinna is, among other things, a fantastic writer, a passionate activist and a really cool chick. She also happens to be an amazing photographer. (And Heather’s photography contains nudity, so be forewarned before you peruse her portfolio.)
I am enthralled by a photo Heather recently added to her collection. I have looked at it so many times that I finally made it the wallpaper on my laptop. It is… in a word… visceral. She’s beautiful, yes, but there is something very powerful, very personal, very raw, in this image. It shakes me, maybe because I identify with it—and the emotions it invokes—all too well.
Each time I look at this picture, I wonder: is she tearing herself apart, or is she trying to hold herself together?
As for me, sometimes I just don’t know.
