This self portrait series was the first one I ever did. It was a reflection of what I felt in that specific moment and I could not describe in words. I was going through a very difficult time and did these series as an assignment for a short course I found.

The feeling I had after doing them was of relief. For the first time I was able to explain to people how I was feeling. This is the day I understood the power of photography.

The series shows the evolution of my emotional state, where I break down until I find what kept me standing. On the last photo of the series I put together my face with my brother's, since he has always been a reason for me to keep trying.
