Cut

Cut is a series of photographs shot in 2016 in cooperation with Landelijke Stichting Zelfbeschadiging, a Dutch organisation for people who self-harm.

 

Self-harm is a subject that rarely achieves media attention but it occurs far more often than people think. It is difficult for people who self-harm to talk about why they do it and just as difficult for friends and family to understand the reasons why.

 

I wanted to raise awareness of self-harm; the reasons why people self-harm and the consequences for themselves and their surroundings.
