Depression

My name is Kimbra Audrey, I’m an american photographer living in Paris. I take only self-portraits and shoot exclusively on film which I develop myself at home. I relate to gurls talk alot. I worked as a model for almost 10 years, I just quit last year after becoming severely depressed and developing an extremely unhealthy relationship with my body. I started modeling when I was 15 after growing up in a troubled home and suffered with depression my entire life as well as numerous suicide attempts. 

I now focus my photography on documenting my depression as well as using it as an outlet for feelings that I have trouble articulating. I find it easier to translate my thoughts into photographs. Not only that by my self-portraiture has helped me build back my self-esteem and confidence which was completely shattered after modeling for so long.
