In folklore, an individual may make a pact with the devil, usually signed with their own blood. The pact involves loss of a part of the individual, the soul. But in my case, it was the possibility of losing something else, and Goethe’s Faust became a metaphor for her experience in the 21st century. My photography explores the battle between an angel and a devil in human's heart, as I deal with the emotional turmoil. The photographs and mixed media recount my reactions from despair, confusion and fear, accompanied by blood and tears, to defiance, a positive spirit and redefined beauty. This is a visual statement of a true physical, emotional and spiritual journey that anyone might be called upon to make.
