Identity | Julian Lucas

I was contacted by Meera to complete a documentary regarding her mental health. Meera requested that I document her scars as a result of her addiction to cutting various parts of her body. She stated that she had been researching different photographers, but was unsuccessful because no one was willing or understood where she was coming from. I have been photographing for many years and unlike many photographers, have been able to separate myself from emotion and capture the realities of an individuals life.
