“Do you not see how necessary a world of pains and troubles is to school intelligence and make it a soul?”, John Keats
At the age of 28, Martina finally found her way out of 4 tortuous years of an eating disorder. Yet these were also 4 years during which she rediscovered herself; 4 years that however painful and dangerous she would never have denied herself.
This series of photographs show a young woman starting a new life. It also shows the trust as photographer and photographic subject we built between each other and also those dark hours which made the Martina of today but which also belong to her past.
