We all have seen the movie Pinocchio as a child. A puppet that sits on a shelf. He wishes to be real. I have made that same wish for myself. I wanna be real. Drop the act,take off the mask and feel..REAL. Lately I have been going through the motions and I am pulled by invisible strings. And I've pushed down the hurt and I've held back the tears. And covered up the dreams. But beneath it all, the me I buried long ago.. Is screaming to break free. Drop the act, take off the mask and feel real.
In this image it looks like she is missing her lower jaw, which makes the image more disturbing especially with the ways her hands are mutilated and covered in blood. The way she is holding her head looks like she is in agony. The black background represents an endless void. This is a close up shot and the camera is level but her head is tilted to give the feeling of anguish.
