12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Another's Arms

The photo is a self portrait overlaid with an image of boulders. A cold and sad emotion is conveyed as the figure grasps her own shoulders in order to find comfort. The overlay of rock is meant to represent the coldness she feels, but also the strength she knows she has within herself.
