You will never discover how far you can go until you take the first step forward.
Lift your feet. Take a step. Breath. Don’t forget to breath. You have so much power, you can fly. I promise.
One step. That’s all it takes to set your dreams in motion.
David Nebreda, Bachelor of Fine Arts, was diagnosed with schizophrenia at age 19. He takes self portraits after whipping, burning, cutting and starving himself.
He lives locked in a flat in Madrid where he makes all his photographic work. He doesn’t take medication, refuses to have communication with the outside world (no radio, newspapers, books or television), practices abstinence, and subjects himself to severe fasts to maintain a state of emaciation.
Whang Od (Buscalan, Philippines)
When Whang Od was twenty-five, the man she was in love with died in a logging accident. Instead of looking for a new husband, she dedicated her life to tattooing and now sixty odd years later she is the last practitioner of an art form that many scholars believe is nearly one thousand years old. Whang Od is still tattooing in her nineties.
