poem, photo collage, 35 mm film

“a photo edit composed of several film photos i took on lomography purple 35mm film and some expired b&w 35mm film. tried to capture some of my obsessive thinking about my past (yesterday) being better, taking me away from the reality of the present beauty that is always around me.

a poem composed out of some prose i journaled when having manic thoughts during panic attacks in the past. scratched the poem on top of one of 35mm photos which was developed incorrectly. the poem captures my internal fight between obsessive reflecting on the past (yesterday), any my struggles in being fully present, where the past ceases to have power over me.”
