Crystal Frias

She watched herself, as she began to dissipate...

 This series is about the home and the individual, I use self-portraiture as a means to express displacement of the individual within a place where a person would usually feel comfortable, a place called home and how one copes with the obstacles that hit home. This series was shot after my mothers second suicide attempt because of an untreated mental illness, though she had survived this was a representation of the displacement I felt in a place that held far too many tragedies, I began to fade.
