15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Portrait of a Shadow

The photo was taken on a very hectic and emotional day to me. I had broken up with my boyfriend whom I was seeing for the last 3 years. We used to share the same bed and I could not remember a single day I had slept by myself, since we got together. I was desperate to imagine the night to come and how I would be able to sleep on the bed, on my own. Hence, I started taking photos of myself to get kill time and stop thinking about it.
