This is my first time sharing here on The One Project. This picture is very symbolic to me because I imagine my subject feeling the way I feel a lot of the time- alone. And the frustration that comes with it when I realize there is a whole big world out there, I just don’t know how to connect with it. It has been a hard week and I definitely feel isolated at times like this.
